The Tony-winning revival of Hair is among the selections for the AfterElton blog's 2009 Visibility Award winners.

Hair (and its messages of love and inclusion) was named Theatrical Event of the Year by the blog, which offers "news, reviews & commentary on gay and bisexual men in entertainment and the media." The musical shut down for a day so that the cast could attend the National Equality March in Washington, DC. Cast member Gavin Creel is an out gay activist and co-founder of Broadway Impact.

Honorable mention for Theatrical Event went to Tony Awards host Neil Patrick Harris and songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

Former Wicked ensemble member and "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert was named Musician of the Year. "Glee" took TV Musical of the Year and "The United States of Tara," featuring Toni Collette, was named TV Drama of the Year.

ABC's "Modern Family" nabbed TV Comedy of the Year and "Ugly Betty" received an honorable mention. The film "A Single Man," based on the Charles Isherwood novel, took Movie of the Year, with honorable mention to "Taking Woodstock."

"One Life to Live" cast members Nicholas Rodriguez, Brett Claywell, Scott Evans and Ron Carlivati (all of whom play into the new gay storyline on the series) were named Men of the Year. Adam Lambert received an honorable mention.
