GLAAD has announced their nominees for the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize & honor media for their fair, accurate & inclusive representations of our LGBTQ community & the issues that affect our lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD's work to accelerate acceptance of the LGBTQ community. Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President & CEO stated, "For nearly 30 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have set the bar for media representations of LGBTQ people. At a time when progress is at a critical juncture, it is imperative that Hollywood tell more LGBTQ stories that reflect the community’s rich diversity & build understanding that brings all communities closer together. This year's nominees have created images & storylines that challenge misconceptions & broaden understanding, accelerating acceptance & equality for LGBTQ people across the globe."
