21st Annual GLAAD Award Nominees

The GLAAD Media Awards honor the fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media. This year's awards, with 152 nominees in 32 categories, will be split into three ceremonies, held in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco in March, April and June.

"Words and images matter," GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios said in a statement.
