Madonna Introduces Grammy Winners Kim Petras & Sam Smith, Beyoncé Cheers Queers, GLAAD Honors Wins Comments (0)

Calling them out as provocateurs and providing an intro/speech that gave credit to all disruptors, Madonna appeared at the Grammys — pretty much covered head-to-toe. My only deep complaint: I need eyebrows. They make all the difference. Of course, Madonna told gay men in the '80s she'd forever have our backs, and in response, many gay men apparently thought, “Thanks! Hope I live long enough to mock you mercilessly.”

Kim's win with Sam for Best Duo gave her the honor of being the first trans woman to win a Grammy! Her speech was so sweet and humble:

Sidebar: Kim was right — she was the first out trans woman to win a Grammy. Wendy Carlos won three (!) in 1970, but when she was professionally and publicly not trans. She came out in 1978. Jackie Shane was nominated in 2019 for Best Historical Recording, but lost. For some reason, some activists are claiming Jackie's being erased — she's not, she just did not win.

Also of note, Beyoncé's Renaissance won in the category of Dance/Electronica Album — somehow, she's the first Black woman to win in this category, which is admittedly only 18 years old — and thanked queer people:

(By the way, Bey is one of just four Black women — along with Donna Summer, Janet Jackson and Rihanna) to win Best Dance Recording, which she won for “Break My Soul.” That category, too, is relatively young —1998— but honestly, that's 25 years.)

GLAAD weighed in on all the queer wins, with VP of Communications & Talent Anthony Allen Ramos saying:

By awarding queer artists from so many segments of the LGBTQ community and representing so many musical genres as Grammy winners, the Recording Academy reminded the world just how impactful LGBTQ people are when it comes to creating music. From Sam Smith and Kim Petras breaking barriers for non-binary and transgender people in music by winning the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, to Brandi Carlile and Wet Leg dominating the Rock and Alternative Music categories with multiple wins, and Steve Lacy’s win for Best Progressive R&B album, the Grammy Awards were dominated by more openly LGBTQ artists and musicians than ever before.

Also, I've seen people calling trans DJ and producer Honey Dijon a Grammy winner for her work on Beyoncé's Renaissance. However, according to Grammy.com, Dijon lost when the album lost Album of the Year. Perhaps the Dance category is reserved for the artists themselves?!
