Here are the GLAAD Media Awards Winners

The GLAAD Media Awards are one of my favorite awards, mostly because I see them and I get reminded that, as far as we still have to go (and it’s far, don’t let this make you complacent), we’re now at a point where an awards show that honors “the fair, accurate and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues – can exist.

Because there are enough shows to make one.

The 31st GLAAD Media Awards were held virtually last night and streamed on GLAAD’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
