We celebrate this year's nominees and special honorees for their inclusive work. However, this year we witnessed a decline in the number of inclusive advertisements in mainstream media, and as our community continues to strive for visibility, the advertising industry should take note.

As we see more gay and transgender characters and stories on television and in film, American consumers are coming to expect images of our community in advertising as well. Advertisers who include fair and accurate images of our community accomplish more than targeting new consumers, they also send a powerful message about the American cultural fabric of which our community is an integral part.
