Madonna has just shared another short snippet of the video filmed in Lisbon recently: "Express Yourself, Don’t Repress Yourself! So excited to share the magic of Lisboa ♥ @nunoxico #music #magic #art #life #journey @dinodsantiago"
"So excited to share my new music with the world... ♫ ♥," is Madonna's comment to her latest Instagram post she shared today. Apparently it's a snippet of the new video she filmed few weeks ago in Lisbon. "But until then a little bit of F U N! On my favorite guitar! #guild #safesex #music. #lisbon #magic #banger". In the post, she tagged her hair-dresser Andy Lecompte, her make-up artist Aaron Smith Henrikson and the director and editor Nuno Xico.
According to www.hollywoodreporter.com, GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, has announced that it will honor Madonna at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on May 4. The singer will receive the Advocate for Change Award and become the ceremony’s second person and first woman to ever receive this honor. The award was previously given to President Bill Clinton in 2013 for his advocacy work to overturn the anti-LGBTQ Defense of Marriage Act and advance marriage equality nationwide.
"Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally and it is only fitting to honor and celebrate our biggest advocate at GLAAD’s biggest event ever," said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted. Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds."
The organization credits the pop singer for continuously supporting the LGBTQ community, given that she has performed at AIDS benefit concerts, included a leaflet in her album Like a Prayer entitled "The Facts about AIDS," in which she gave fans crucial information about AIDS, and avidly speaks out against anti-LGBTQ laws, policies and practices.
The pop goddess Madonna is going to perform at this year's Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final on May 18th, 2019, according to today's article on www.ynet.co.il. She is expected to sign a contract in the few upcoming days. The performance, taking place in the middle of the show, will supposedly consist of two songs, one classics and one brand new song. The singer will receive 1.5 million dollars for her performance, donated by Sylvan Adams, one of Israel's most enthusiastic philanthropists and donors. The performance has been rumored for weeks, but significant progress in negotiations between Adams' representatives and Madonna's management have been made just now. Sylvan Adams believes that the participation of an artist like Madonna in the Eurovision will significantly increase the exposure and media coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest and the events that accompany it.

Madonna has just made a secret appearance at the Stonewall Inn in New York City at midnight and performed accoustic versions of Like A Prayer and Can't Help Falling In Love there by Elvis Presley, while her son David played the guitar for her.
"For years, violent and humiliating police raids were common occurrences at gay sanctuaries across the country. Discrimination and unjust treatment was beyond comprehension. No gathering place for the LGBTQ community was truly safe, and our brothers and sisters weren't free to celebrate like we are tonight. And we must never forget that. A half a century later, Stonewall has become a defining moment and a critical turning point in history — catapulting LGBTQ rights into public conversation and consciousness, and awakening activism."
More photos from this event can be found in the Gallery section.

"Rebel. Maverick. Barrier breaker. Trailblazer. Icon. Activist. Mother. Ally. Stonewall Ambassador. ♥ ♥ ♥ Today we are insanely proud to announce Madonna is a Stonewall Ambassador supporting Stonewall Day + the 50th anniversary of Stonewall!!" This is the message from the Instagram account The Stonewall Inn letting us know the queen of pop will join this amazing Stonewall organization to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall riots, which were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the LGBT community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.
Stonewall (officially Stonewall Equality Limited) is now a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights charity in the United Kingdom. This is now the largest LGBT rights organisation not only in the UK but in Europe, it was formed in 1989 by political activists and others lobbying against section 28 of the Local Government Act. Its founders include Sir Ian McKellen, Lisa Power and Lord Cashman.
