TOTAL NUMBER OF GLAAD MEDIA AWARDS CATEGORIES: 30
(26 English, 4 Spanish-language)
CRITERIA FOR NOMINATION:
GLAAD Media Awards nominees are selected using the following four criteria:
- Fair, Accurate, and Inclusive Representations – Rather than portraying the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community using broad stereotypes, the project deals with the characters or themes in a fair, accurate, and multi-dimensional manner. Inclusive speaks to the importance of having the diversity of the LGBTQ community represented in our nominees.
- Boldness and Originality – The project breaks new ground by exploring LGBTQ subject matter in non-traditional ways, and handles the LGBTQ content in a fresh and original manner.
- Impact – The media project dramatically increases the cultural dialogue about LGBTQ issues, or reaches an audience that is not regularly exposed to LGBTQ images and issues. The project has significant cultural impact.
- Overall Quality – A project of extremely high quality adds significance to the images and issues portrayed and draws more viewers or readers to the material. Fair, accurate, and inclusive images may be less impactful if they are part of a poor-quality project.
FACTS ABOUT THE NOMINEES:
Streaming services saw a total of 63 nominees, with cable receiving 39 nominations, and broadcast networks receiving 17 nominations.

Each year, GLAAD presents non-competitive Special Recognition Awards to media projects that do not fit into one of the existing GLAAD Media Awards categories. For the 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards, GLAAD is presenting Special Recognition honors to eight media projects that spotlighted diverse segments of the LGBTQ community in innovative ways. The eight media projects include:
- The filmed reading and performance of All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson, which premiered in February 2021 and centers on three chapters from Johnson’s memoir as performed by Jenifer Lewis, Dyllón Burnside, Bernard David Jones, and Thomas Hobson. The memoir and performance chronicles Johnson’s story of growing up Black and queer in America, challenging gender identity norms, and learning to live with HIV, ultimately raising important and nuanced conversations about Black masculinity and queerness.
- 4D with Demi Lovato’s episode featuring nonbinary author, performer, and activist Alok Vaid-Menon, in which Lovato and Vaid-Menon engage in important conversations about what it means to be nonbinary, while sharing their own perspectives on the importance of living openly and honestly as one’s authentic self.
- Paramount+’s CODED: The Hidden Love of J.C. Leyendecker, a documentary short which tells the story of illustrator J.C. Leyendecker, a gay man whose early-20th century advertisements were coded with LGBTQ imagery that quietly acknowledged the gay community and laid the foundation for LGBTQ representation in advertising today.
- Jeopardy! Champion Amy Schneider, who has made history by becoming one of the show’s all-time top contestants and the first woman to surpass the $1 million mark in total earnings. Schneider has used her history-making appearances and new platform to raise awareness of transgender issues, while also sharing her personal story with millions of people across the country.
- The Laverne Cox Show, the Shondaland Audio/iHeartMedia podcast hosted by actress and activist Laverne Cox, which features intimate and timely conversations about culture, gender, relationships, race, mental health, and more. In its first season, Cox hosted LGBTQ guests including Ts Madison, Billy Porter, Jen Richards, Alok Vaid-Menon, Tracey ‘Africa’ Norman, Chase Strangio, and others for in-depth discussions about anti-trans violence and legislation, dating within the trans community, the importance of trans visibility and empowerment, HIV awareness, and more.
- Life Out Loud with LZ Granderson, the ABC News podcast hosted by journalist LZ Granderson, in which he draws from his experience as a Black gay father to host thought-provoking and engaging conversations with influential LGBTQ figures, including Michaela Jaé (Mj) Rodriguez, Steven Canals, Ritchie Torres, Sarah McBride, Tom Daley, Rufus Wainwright, Shangela, Jason Collins, and more.
- Outsports’ Coverage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, which was instrumental in sparking international media coverage of the record number of out LGBTQ Olympians at the Games. In addition to spotlighting and profiling the successes and triumphs of various LGBTQ Olympians, Outsports was the first outlet to create a full list of out athletes participating at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics (“Team LGBTQ”), which was widely cited by mainstream media outlets and brought conversations about the significance of LGBTQ inclusion in sports to a global scale.
- “Celebrando el Mes del Orgullo,” a campaign launched by Telemundo in June 2021 featuring PSAs that aired across Telemundo stations. The PSAs shared stories of inspiring LGBTQ Latinx people and their contributions to society, while also raising awareness about the issues still facing the LGBTQ Latinx community today.
GLAAD’s Barbara Gittings Award for Excellence in LGBTQ Media honors a pioneering individual, group, or community media outlet that has made a significant contribution to the development of LGBTQ media. The award is named after Barbara Gittings in recognition of her groundbreaking work as editor of The Ladder, and for her appearances as an out lesbian on national news media throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
This year’s recipient of the Barbara Gittings Award for Excellence in LGBTQ Media is Franco Stevens, a pioneering lesbian journalist and founding publisher of Curve Magazine, one of the world’s leading lesbian lifestyle magazines. Launched as Deneuve in 1990, Curve Magazine has been pivotal in bringing mainstream attention to the lives and issues of the lesbian community at a time when both visibility and acceptance were extremely low, ultimately allowing many lesbians and queer women to feel seen and find community. After re-acquiring Curve Magazine in 2021, Stevens launched The Curve Foundation, a non-profit organization created to empower lesbians, queer women, trans and nonbinary people of all races, ages, and abilities to share stories, connect, and raise visibility. Franco Stevens’ legacy is spotlighted in the recent Starz documentary Ahead of the Curve, which takes an in-depth look at Stevens’ journey from launching Curve Magazine to The Curve Foundation, and her ongoing impact on the growing landscape for lesbian visibility and acceptance over the past 30 years. Stevens also previously served on GLAAD’s Board of Directors, helping to drive the organization’s mission of LGBTQ acceptance forward.
