CNN's Anderson Cooper was presented with the Vito Russo Award at the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York on Saturday by a very special "Boy Scout": Madonna.
The singer dressed up in uniform to deliver Anderson's statue, which is given to an LGBT media professional who's made a difference in promoting equality.
Madge's outfit was a nod to GLAAD's campaign against the Boy Scouts of America's ban on having openly gay members in its organization.
Before presenting Cooper with his award, Madonna said, "I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn't let me join. I think that's f****d up.
"I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. I want to do good for the community," she continued. "And most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. So I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout - and I think they should change their stupid rules."
But then she got down to business, telling those gathered at the New York event that she was there to give an award to someone she admires and to "acknowledge someone who is brave."
As Cooper accepted his award, he managed to sneak in a smooch from the superstar.
"She's an extraordinary ally, and I'm thankful for her artistry and her friendship," Cooper said of Madonna.
Other winners at Saturday's event were NBC's "Smash," which won for outstanding drama series, and CBS's "The Amazing Race," which won for outstanding reality program.

Madonna is patronizing the gay community AGAIN? Fricking fraud....
what am i wearing this evening.
Congratulations ! you 2 have served your Illuminati Masters well! Madge you managed to Hoover vac'd $34 million out of our community last year and gave nothing in return while taking on BS "issues" like the Boy Scouts and our man of the hour a Vanderbilt CIA Mole whose job is to infiltrate / discredit/ destroy / any and all of our organizations . Well Done ! #DUPED #FAKELEFT #NOLEADERS
There is an interesting website dedicated to Madonnas plagiarizing and copyright infringements it has before and after images of the originals and Madonnas "reinvention" of others material. Go to Google and enter the words "many artists Madonna stole from". It seems Illuminati and musical monopolies go hand in hand.
We find her a problem in the industry–no issues with anderson cooper

This woman does not mind her own business-proved.
This woman has not been relevant in thirty years.
like an idiot. That doesn't look anything like a Boy Scouts uniform.
A much needed and well deserved "Thank You to my boyfriend, Ben," from Anderson.
For desecrating the uniform. Keep the gays where they belong.... in the closet and out of the Boy Scouts.
Scouting, in and of itself, is kind of gay really. I mean, seriously, take a look at the little dweebs who were active in scouting back when you were in school. It seems that gays belong in the BSA.
But then, you probably voted for Obama and have all of Madonna's albums, too.
Does this mean M'Donna has a pen!s?
anderson should be charged with RAPE!! Madonna clearly did not want a kiss- he should know better- a womansays NO it means NO! put the dum basterd away!!! HE SHOULD NEVER HOST ANYTHING
