Madonna has called on the Boy Scouts to lift its ban on gays and "change their stupid rules", while speaking at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday.

The 54-year-old singer, who wore a replica of the organization’s uniform, urged the audience to join her in a “revolution” to prevent discrimination and abuse of the gay community, Fox News reported.


Madonna, who was on hand to give Anderson Cooper the organization’s “Vito Russo” award, also spoke about young people who commit suicide after suffering from bullying.

“The situation is an atrocity to me and I don’t accept it,” she said.
