GLAAD has finally decided to include LGBT media in its annual Media Awards. From them:
“With the expansion of cable channels and niche programming, LGBT created and consumed media is more readily available than ever before,” stated [GLAAD executive director Neil] Giuliano. “Our Board has decided to incorporate LGBT media submissions into the existing competitive categories. We welcome the opportunity for LGBT media to submit their journalism and programming for consideration.”
It was really strange that media outlets like here! and Logo were excluded from the Media Awards because they were actually directed at queer people. Was the assumption that they had it too easy being on one of those channels? Or that queer people can't possibly make bad television programs or buy into homophobia or transphobia?
Either way, they've changed course and are trying to include these networks. A good step in the right direction.
