Russell Simmons Lands Major Gay Honour
The Def Jam Records co-founder will receive the Excellence in Media Award at the ceremony in recognition of his work promoting gay rights.
Simmons, a longtime campaigner for equal rights, wrote an open letter to former New York Governor David Paterson in 2009 to praise the leader for supporting gay marriage.
Previous winners of the Glaad honour include Joy Behar and model-turned-Tv personality Tyra Banks.
The prizegiving will take place in New York City on 19 March (11).
