The 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues.

Visibility of LGBTQ people has always mattered and this year it’s more important than ever. LGBTQ people – especially youth – are now forced to isolate in homes and spaces that might not be affirming. As a result, LBGTQ media images are even more of a lifeline for LGBTQ people.
The GLAAD Media Awards have always raised the bar for LGBTQ inclusion in media, and this year we will raise the bar once more with a first-of-its-kind virtual awards event. Stay tuned to see even more of what we have up our sleeves for what is sure to be an evening to remember.
GLAAD is excited to make the Media Awards accessible in American Sign Language with our partners at DPAN.TV The Sign Language Channel
