Gloria was being honoured with the Special Recognistion award at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City when she took the opportunity to give a moving speech on finally being able to 'have the right to love who I love'.

Jay-Z used a track ("Smile") from his latest album, 4:44, to reveal his mom, Gloria Carter, is not only now openly gay, but that she's even found love. She detailed how when she finally confessed her sexuality to her son he had said: 'It must have been awful to live that way, ' to which she said no, she had been happy, just not free. Thanks to my family for loving me unconditionally, no matter what. "I cried because I was so happy for her because she was free".

"I'm old school", Carter said, starting off her acceptance speech.

"'Smile" became a reality because I shared with my son who I am", she said. Not that people didn't know; I was just someone that they didn't talk about but they loved me anyway. "But, to me, this was the first time that I spoke to anyone about who I really am". He's like, 'That had to be a disgusting life, ma.' I was like, 'My life was never terrible.

Millions of people heard Carter's story on Jay Z's song when he released the album past year.

"Mama had four kids, but she's a lesbian/Had to pretend so long that she's a thespian", Jay raps on the song.

During an appearance on the D'Usse Friday Podcast, Ms. Carter explained the balance between how being closeted impacted her while also living a fulfilled life. Society shame and the pain was too much to take.

Reading from prepared remarks, Carter told the audience: "Thanks to you, to all the people whose lives I touched, for your support, by just telling my truth". Cried tears of joy when you fell in love. She finished things off by adding "So everybody, just smile, be free".

Over the weekend the one and only, Gloria Carter was honored at the GLAAD Media Awards.
