Stepping out to show their support for equality, stars of all kinds gathered together to attend the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday (March 16).

Opting for quite a different red carpet ensemble, Madonna showed up in a boy scout uniform where she playfully showed off for the awaiting photographers.

Also on hand were "Jersey Shore" stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley who worked the media line while mingling with Hollywood beauty Milla Jovovich.

The "Material Girl" songstress, who has been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community, was tapped to present Anderson Cooper with the award for openly gay media professionals.

Upon taking the stage, the Pop icon explained her unique outfit, saying, "I wanted to be a boy scout, but they wouldn’t let me join,” adding, “I think that’s f–ked 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. Listen, I wanna do for the community. But 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.”

The GLAAD Media Awards celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and our allies on TV, in film, and in the news.
