News   Bring It On, The Columnist, The Whale and More Are GLAAD Media Award Nominees
Nominees for 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," have been announced.

Awards will be presented in three separate ceremonies: in NYC on March 16, Los Angeles on April 20 and San Francisco on May 11.

In a 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."
