"Tonight I'm here to honor someone who, through her words and through her actions, proves that she is a force of nature," Swift said after a taking the stage to the roar of the surprised audience. "She tells the world that no one can judge us and no one can stop us. She is a woman of many talents and she is my friend."
"Ruby breaks down barriers and opens up opportunities for all people, but most importantly, young LGBT people all over the world," Swift continued.
The award -- named in honor of casting director Stephen F. Kolzak who dedicated a large part of his life raising awareness in the entertainment industry about the discrimination those in the LGBT community face – is presented to "an LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance," according to GLAAD
Rose, 30, embraced Swift as she came up to accept the award and the actress seemed legitimately moved by the 26-year-old singer's touching introduction and unexpected appearance.
