It’s that time of year when GLAAD, the nation’s LGBT media watchdogs announce their nominees for its 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. This is in recognition for outstanding images of our LGBT community in the entertainment & media industry.
Sarah Kate Ellis GLAAD President & CEO stated, "For nearly 30 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have raised the bar for inclusion in news & entertainment, transforming LGBT representation in media & moving the dial for acceptance across the globe. It's been a remarkable year for equality & nowhere is that more evident than in the visibility LGBT people have gained across media. This year's nominees, including expanded categories in Outstanding Comedy & Drama Series, reflect the widening diversity of LGBT images & storylines that are closing the gap to full acceptance." Among the nominees: Amazon Instant Video's smash hit Transparent; ABC's How to Get Away with Murder; HBO's Game of Thrones, Looking, & The Normal Heart; Academy Award nominee The Imitation Game & Golden Globe nominee Pride; Love is Strange, Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word & True Trans with Laura Jane Grace, both documentaries about transgender people & Sam Smith for his critically acclaimed album In the Lonely Hour. The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on March 21th at The Beverly Hilton & we’ll be in in New York on May 9th at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC to cover the RED Carpet for OUTTTAKE VOICES™.
