In a statement released today with the nominees, GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said, “”For nearly 30 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have raised the bar for inclusion in news and entertainment, transforming LGBT representation in media and moving the dial for acceptance across the globe. It’s been a remarkable year for equality, and nowhere is that more evident than in the visibility LGBT people have gained across media. This year’s nominees, including expanded categories in Outstanding Comedy and Drama Series, reflect the widening diversity of LGBT images and storylines that are closing the gap to full acceptance.”
