GLAAD Announces Nominees For 27th Annual Awards

gma-banner-nominee
GLAAD, (aka: “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation” but that wasn’t very inclusive so “GLAAD” is just “GLAAD” now…) announced the nominations today for the 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards which are awarded in two separate events.

The GLAAD Media Awards will be held on April 2, 2016 in Los Angeles and May 14th, 2016 in New York. Tickets can be purchased here: www.glaad.org/mediaawards/events.The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives.

“For nearly three decades, the GLAAD Media Awards have propelled inclusion in media and driven LGBT acceptance forward,” said GLAAD CEO & President Sarah Kate Ellis. “This year’s nominees have raised the bar for creating thoughtful and diverse LGBT images and storylines, deepening audiences’ understanding of LGBT people and accelerating acceptance across the world.”

And, for the first time, LOGO TV will televise the awards in April.

Here are all the English language nominations. GLAAD also awards positive queer representations in Spanish language media. Go here for full list.
