Game Changer Kerry Washington Owns The GLAAD Media Awards

Last night was the 26th annual GLADD Media Awards in Los Angeles, an evening that honors different areas of the media for their depiction of members in the LGBT community. Among the winners, who are listed below, was Kerry Washington who took home the Vanguard Award for her support of equal rights. Our girl Kerry showed up, slayed the red carpet (she looked STUNNING), accepted her well-deserved award, AND dropped a bomb-ass speech on equal rights: total Wonder Woman status. Check out the speech below.
