Advocate, ABC, and MSNBC Lead Noms In 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards


Reflecting a year of incredible diversity, a record number of trans people have recieved nominations.

GLAAD's annual awards recognizes and honors media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBT people and their lives. The organization has just released the nominees for its 27th year, a wide-ranging list that pays tribute to the richly diverse nature of society, something that mainstream awards programs have largely failed to appreciate.
