Out is also nominated alongside LGBTQ+ media like Bottoms, Our Flag Means Death, and Troye Sivan!

The nominees for the 35th annual GLAAD Media Awards have been announced, and the list is full of queer excellence!

The list of nominees is stacked with incredible LGBTQ+ movies, television shows, music artists, and journalism, including Out and our sibling publication, The Advocate, which are nominated for Outstanding Magazine — Overall Coverage.

This year, GLAAD has put particular emphasis on celebrating the trans and nonbinary community during a year when bills targeting trans youth and restricting access to gender-affirming care have been sweeping the nation.

“At a time when the LGBTQ community is under attack by false narratives and misinformation, when less than half of Americans say they are familiar with transgender and nonbinary people, and when one in five Gen Z adults identify as LGBTQ, this year’s nominees powerfully reflect the realities of LGBTQ existence today, in our communities and around the globe,” GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a press release. “Amid a summer of union strikes across Hollywood, the stakes have never been higher to maintain the progress of LGBTQ visibility and representation across all media, from film, television, music, journalism, publishing and more.”

Some of our most loved TV shows, movies, and music are included on the list of incredible talent nominated for awards.

All of Us Strangers, The Blackening, Bottoms, The Color Purple, Anyone But You, and It’s a Wonderful Knife were all nominated in the wide-release film category. While Rustin, Friends & Family Christmas, Runs in the Family, and Red, White & Royal Blue were among the nominees in the Outstanding Film – Streaming Or TV category. Films like Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, How to Blow Up a Pipeline, Our Son, and Passages will battle it out in the limited-release category.

Doctor Who, 9-1-1: Lone Star, Chucky, Good Trouble, and Yellowjacket were among the TV shows nominated in the drama category. And Just Like That…, Good Omens, Our Flag Means Death, Sex Education, and What We Do In The Shadows are up for the comedy category.

Black Cake, The Fall of the House of Usher, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, I Am Jazz, Queer Eye, The Ultimatum: Queer Love, The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Project Runway, and Drag Me to Dinner were all nominated in the reality TV categories.

Some of our favorite LGBTQ+ shows were canceled over the past year — think Our Flag Means Death, The L Word: Generation Q, A League of Their Own, and Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies — which reminds us why it’s so important to celebrate queer media.

The music categories are chock-full of talented queer artists like Billy Porter, boygenius, Janelle Monáe, Kim Petras, Reneé Rapp, Troye Sivan, and Sam Smith, who are all nominated for Outstanding Music Artist. Chappell Roan, David Archuleta, G Flip, Ice Spice, Iniko, and Slayyyter are all vying for a chance to win Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist.

Not only were both Out and The Advocate nominated in the Outstanding Magazine category but The Advocate’s senior national reporter, Christopher Wiggins, is nominated for Outstanding Online Journalism Article for “Stochastic Terrorism: Links Between the GOP, Right-Wing Influencers & Neo-Nazi Violence.”

Check out all of the nominees here. The 35th GLAAD Media Awards will take place in Los Angeles on March 14 and in New York City on May 11.
