Tonight marked the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City, and the event featured appearances and speeches from a veritable who's-who of the LGBT and allied world of media and entertainment.

Presenting the Vito Russo Award to out CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, Madonna took the stage dressed as a Boy Scout.
"Listen, I want to do good for the community," said Madonna. "But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys."
"I used to be a Girl Scout," said Madonna. "But I got kicked out. Do you want to know why? Because my skirt was too short, and I never sold enough cookies — I ate the cookies."
Watch Madonna's entire speech below.
