GLAAD Media Awards Presented in NYC March 16
By Andrew Gans
The 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which "celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and our allies on TV, in film, and in the news," are presented in NYC March 16 at the New York Marriott Marquis.
Sam Champion, Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer are the hosts of the ceremony, which begins at 5:30 PM. Anderson Cooper will be presented with the Vito Russo Award; singer-actress Madonna is the featured guest.
Separate award ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on April 20 and San Francisco on May 11.
In a previous statement GLAAD president Herndon Graddick said, "Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels…This year's nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues and friends. Now more than ever, viewers not only accept gay and transgender characters and plot lines, they expect them — just as they both accept and expect LGBT people to be a valuable part of their everyday lives."
Nominees in the theatre categories follow:
Outstanding Los Angeles Theater
Outstanding New York Theater: Broadway and Off-Broadway
Outstanding New York Theater: Off-Off Broadway
