The 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards recognize media for their fair, accurate and inclusive portrayals of LGBTQ people and issues. Since its inception in 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have become the world’s most visible annual LGBTQ awards show, sending powerful messages of acceptance to audiences around the world.

“This year’s GLAAD Media Awards come at a time when LGBTQ visibility and storytelling may be the frontline response to a dangerous rise in anti-LGBTQ legislation across the country,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President- CEO of GLAAD. “Our nominees and winners, including Pose, Sesame Street, Eternals, hacks, Lil Nas Xwe are here and so many journalists and news producers showcase the beautiful diversity of LGBTQ people. When we need them most, these stories speak out against hate, enlighten, entertain and send an undeniable message: we’re not going anywhere.
