Welcome back to the Out Newsletter!

We won a GLAAD Award! As you may have seen, Out won the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Magazine – Overall Coverage! Thank you to everyone who reads and supports us! We really appreciate you so much!

Our sister publication, The Advocate, had won the last two years, so we’re excited we could keep the trophy in the equalpride family!

With the Queertys and GLAAD Awards, it's officially the end of Awards Season, and there’s a lot to catch up on.

For us, Awards Season started with the announcement of the very queer Grammy nominees in November. At that same time, we also shared who we thought were our biggest Grammy snubs, including Reneé Rapp, Sam Smith, and Doechii.

Grammys night was exceptionally busy for us. Not only did we cover LGBTQ+ celebs who walked the red carpet, and male celebs who didnt’ wear just boring tuxes, but we also covered wins by many of our favorite artists, as queer women like Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, boygenius, and Victoria Monét won.

The 2024 Golden Globe Awards were next, and we brought you the nominees, snubs, and queer happenings on the red carpet.

The Emmys this year took place in January, much later than usual, as it was delayed by the strikes, but when they came, they were exceptionally gay. We reported on the queer celebs who walked the carpet, as well as history making wins by Niecy Nash-Betts, RuPaul, and Drag Race as well as music legend Elton John completing his EGOT.

Early this year, we gave our picks for who we thought should be competing for Oscars, and when the nominees were announced, we gave you our biggest snubs. We also gave you a behind-the-scenes look at attending the Oscars, a red carpet rundown, coverage of Billie Eilish becoming the youngest two-time Oscar winner, John Cena’s naked body, and a missed chance at history with Lily Gladstone.

You can also check out our coverage of other awards shows like the Soul Train Awards, where an award was renamed the Spirit of Soul Award for Janelle Monáe, who was the first nonbinary winner of it, the Independent Spirit Awards, Annie Awards, and BAFTAs.

Now, onto the biggest stories from this week.

The comment of the week comes from @umcearense on Twitter, who replied to our story about Bachelor producers considering a queer season by saying, “the rainbow bachelor, love it, want it.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

Gayest Song of the Week

Lesbian pop star Zolita's latest single, "All Girls Go to Heaven" debuted this week on and is our Gayest Song of the Week! The joyful, unabashedly proud self-love anthem is a perfect response to all of the terrible things happening to queer people every time we look at the news. "Kiss me up against the Golden Gates, all girls go to heaven and God is gay," Zolita sings.
