Rising artist Lizzo is taking 2019 by storm! Lizzo is set to perform at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. Taking place in Los Angeles on March 28th, Lizzo joins many popular presenters such as Meghan Trainor, Hayley Kiyoko, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Lizzo’s GLAAD performance precedes the release of her highly anticipated debut album “Cuz I Love You,” which will drop April 19th.

Promoting the alliance of the world and the LGBTQ community, Lizzo will reportedly perform her fan-favorite record “Juice,” but she may also perform her other hits such as “Boys” and the Missy Elliot-assisted “Tempo.” Hosted by Ross Matthews, this week’s show will honor Beyonce and Jay-Z with the Vanguard award for their work with the LGBTQ community while honoring Emmy award-winning actor Sean Hayes with the Stephen F. Kolzak award.

In regards to the progress of the GLAAD awards, GLAAD’s Chief Communications Officer Rich Ferraro says, “From Phil Donahue speaking at the first Awards in 1990 to Cher surprising her son Chaz after he transitioned in 2012, to the message that Beyoncé and Jay-Z will send to LGBTQ people of color this year, the GLAAD Media Awards inspire and empower. This year’s star-studded events will reflect on how LGBTQ images in the media moved culture forward over the last 30 years and will celebrate the next generation of diverse LGBTQ creators, actors, and storytellers who are raising the bar at a critical time in our community and our country.”
