JAY-Z‘s mother was honored at the GLAAD Media Awards over the weekend.

Gloria Carter (pictured above with her partner) received a special recognition award from Robin Roberts for her contribution to her son’s song, “Smile,” featured on his latest album, 4:44.

 

 

Ms. Gloria looked fantastic as she took the stage to accept her award and delivered a beautiful and emotional speech where she said:

Love gave me the courage to take the power that I allowed other people to have over my life for fear of them revealing my secret.

I am a human being who has a right to love who I love.

So everybody, just smile, be free.
