By Charlotte Robinson, April 27, 2014

As we gear up for the NYC GLAAD Media Awards on May 3rd, in London the Out in the City & G3 Magazine Awards known as the 'Gay Oscars' were presented on April 25th at the Landmark Hotel. This glitzy awards ceremony pays tribute to the individuals & organizations who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to promoting equality & diversity. Gay celebrities & gay allies were recognized for their commitment to equality after a vote by readers of the popular UK gay magazines. 'Straight Ally of the Year' which was sponsored by GLAAD, went to Queens Park Ranger footballer Joey Barton who attended the awards with his openly gay uncle Tom Barton. In attendance at the event was Sarah Kate Ellis GLAAD President & CEO who stated, “Celebrating diversity & inclusion in the US & the UK manifest the need for global LGBT equality. Our May 3rd New York Media Awards will not only be a celebration but will also showcase the work that needs to be done.” Other winners included Olympic diver Tom Daley, who won the Sports Personality of the Year award, TV presenter Paul O'Grady & actress Heather Peace were jointly named Celebrity of the Year & Graham Norton & BBC’s Jane Hill secured the Broadcaster of the Year. For List of 2014 Winners… We will be covering the GLAAD Media Awards on the Red Carpet in NYC on May 3rd at the Waldorf Astoria. Updates To Come…:)
