Upon presenting the award and on Rodriguez's honor, Andrew Garfield stated: "Through her art and her energy, Michaela Jaé is making the world respect Black women, Latinas, and all women as we should. In a moment of reckoning for our industry, she is leading the charge to create and produce stories centered on LGBTQ lives and experiences, particularly those of trans women of color. She reminds us that you can't just say you're an ally. Allyship means action. She inspires me to love others as boldly as I can."

Upon acceptance of the award, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez stated: "I have to thank my mother and father for seeing me and loving me. When a child is loved, whether you are LGBTQIA or not, it makes all the difference. When you tell your queer child that you love them, they think, 'I love me too.' I thank all the parents in Texas, Florida, Idaho, Arizona, and around the world who are standing up to fear and ignorance, and grounding their LGBTQIA children in love and acceptance."

Upon acceptance of the Vanguard Award from Ben Platt, Kacey Musgraves stated: "One of the biggest compliments I've ever gotten in regards to my career is a gay country fan telling me they heard my music and finally felt invited to a party they'd never got invited to. I will continue to have your backs and I so dearly appreciate you having mine."

Kacey Musgraves surprised audience with surprise performance of "Rainbow," dedicated to LGBTQ community.

GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis was introduced by JoJo Siwa, and called for action from Hollywood: "In this moment of crisis, what's different is our community is holding companies accountable. So I have a message for the industry: Don't wait until you're in the hot seat. There's no more time to sit on the sidelines. We need Hollywood on the front lines, fighting for our rights and telling our stories.

GLAAD is calling on Hollywood to take meaningful action and will soon convene the biggest brands, agencies, studios, and streamers together with two goals: 1, to commit to improving the quantity, quality, and diversity of LGBTQ images — especially in kids and family programming; and 2, to speak out against anti-LGBTQ legislation in favor of rights like the Equality Act. I expect every industry executive in this room to join us. GLAAD will give you the playbook. But we won't give you a pass."

The 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Since its inception in 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have grown to be the most visible annual LGBTQ awards show in the world, sending powerful messages of acceptance to audiences globally. The 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Gilead Sciences, Inc., Hyundai, and Ketel One Family Made Vodka. Delta Air Lines is a Major Sponsor of the events, Sony Music Group is an Official Sponsor, and Comcast NBCUniversal Telemundo is a Titanium Sponsor.

The nominees for the 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards were published, released, or broadcast between Jan. 1, 2021 and Dec. 31, 2021. For a full list of nominees, click here.
