GLAAD, the world's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) media advocacy organization, announced today the nominees for the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards. Actress Josie Totah (Peacock's Saved By The Bell), actor and performer D.J. 'Shangela' Pierce (HBO's We're Here), and actor Jonathan Bennett (The Hallmark Channel's The Christmas House) announced the nominees via live-stream on GLAAD's TikTok page.

The 32nd 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 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Gilead and Ketel One Family-Made Vodka.

GLAAD has also reinstated the Barbara Gittings Award for Excellence in LGBTQ Media, which 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 Windy City Times, Chicago's pioneering LGBTQ news publication established in 1985 by Jeff McCourt, Bob Bearden, Drew Badanish, and Tracy Baim. Born in the midst of the AIDS epidemic, Windy City Times and its team helped to counter the defamatory coverage of HIV and the LGBTQ community in mainstream media, and sought to amplify LGBTQ voices at a time when acceptance for the community was extremely low. Over the past 35 years, Windy City Times has been Chicago's main LGBTQ newspaper and has continued to be a leading voice for LGBTQ people and the issues. More information can be found in the tip sheet about this year's nominees available at: www.glaad.org/releases .

For a full list of nominees see below or here: glaad.org/mediaawards/nominees. Award recipients will be announced during a virtual ceremony scheduled for April 2021.

A tip sheet with a breakdown of nominations by media and trends among the nominees is available at: www.glaad.org/releases. Follow #glaadawards and @glaad for updates and reactions from nominees throughout the day. The 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards nominees were published, released, or broadcast between January 1 and Dec. 31, 2020.

GLAAD announced 198 nominees in 28 categories, including two new categories: Outstanding Children's Programming and Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist. As LGBTQ representation continues to grow in Kids & Family programming, the new Outstanding Children's Programming category recognizes television programs created for younger children that showcase LGBTQ people and families. The new Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist recognizes LGBTQ artists who have achieved a breakthrough in the music industry during the eligibility period and whose songs, music videos, or live performances have made a significant impact on LGBTQ visibility and acceptance. This year, several categories increased from five to ten worthy nominees to recognize expanding levels of diverse LGBTQ representation across several media genres.

Previously announced 2020 honors for Taylor Swift, Janet Mock, Ryan Murphy, and Judith Light will be handed out at a separate date. Murphy created, directed, produced and/or executive produced six nominees this year (The Prom, The Boys in the Band, Circus of Books, Hollywood, Ratched, 9-1-1: Lone Star).

"During an unprecedented year of crises and isolation, the nominees for the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards reached LGBTQ people with powerful stories and inspired countless others around the world with bold looks at LGBTQ people and issues," said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "As GLAAD continues to lead the fight for LGBTQ acceptance, this year's nominees remind us that even in times of political and cultural division, diverse LGBTQ representation and visibility can enlighten, entertain, and create lasting change."

Streaming services saw a total of 58 nominees, with cable receiving 29 nominations, and broadcast networks receiving 14 nominations. Netflix scored the most nominations of any network with a total of 26 nominees, followed by HBO Max with 9 nominees. Amazon, Hulu, and HBO received 4 nominations each, while Disney+ and PBS each received 3 nominations. The Hallmark Channel received its first nomination for The Christmas House. ABC also received several nominations in the journalism categories this year. ABC received one nomination in both Outstanding TV Journalism Segment and Outstanding TV Journalism - Long-Form ("Dwyane Wade One-On-One: Basketball Legend Opens Up About Supporting Transgender Daughter" and "ABC News Joe Biden Town Hall," respectively), while ABC News Live also received one nomination in the same two categories ("Faith, Foster Care and LGBTQ Rights Collide in Supreme Court" and "Pride on ABC News Live: The Landmark Decision," respectively). In the Outstanding Online Journalism Article category, GoodMorningAmerica.com received a nomination for "Gay Men Speak Out After Being Turned Away from Donating Blood During Coronavirus Pandemic: 'We are Turning Away Perfectly Healthy Donors'" by Tony Morrison and Joel Lyons.

In the midst of a long overdue social movement against racial and ethnic discrimination, several of the nominees at the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards include powerful and impactful stories about LGBTQ people of color. Those nominees include: Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, The Prom, The Craft: Legacy, Twenties, 9-1-1: Lone Star, Love, Victor, Superstore, Star Trek: Discovery, Vida, Sex Education, P-Valley, I May Destroy You, The Half of It, Monsoon, Lingua Franca, The Boys in the Band, I Carry You With Me, Kajillionaire, The Wilds, Supergirl, Big Mouth, Dead to Me, Everything's Gonna Be Okay, Wynonna Earp, Dispatches from Elsewhere, Hollywood, Little Fires Everywhere, Legendary, Queer Eye, RuPaul's Drag Race, We're Here, TransGriot, The Reckoning, among others. A tip sheet with an additional breakdown of diversity as well as other facts and figures about this year's nominees is available at: www.glaad.org/releases.

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 32nd 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: After Forever (Amazon), Deadline's New Hollywood Podcast, Happiest Season Soundtrack (Facet/Warner Records), Noah's Arc: The 'Rona Chronicles (Patrik Ian-Polk Entertainment), Out (Pixar/Disney+), Razor Tongue (YouTube), "The Son" Little America (Apple TV+), and Jesse & Joy's "Love (Es Nuestro Idioma)." A full summary of the projects receiving Special Recognition can be found in the tip sheet with an additional breakdown of facts and figures about this year's nominees available at: www.glaad.org/releases.

Last year, the 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards was virtual for the first time, hosted by comedians Fortune Feimster and Gina Yashere. The ceremony featured special performances from Chloe x Halle, Shea Diamond, and Ben Platt. Among award recipients included Lil Nas X, Pose, Schitt's Creek, Booksmart, Dolly Parton's Heartstrings, Raquel Willis, Ryan O'Connell, and more.

GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis serves as Executive Producer of the GLAAD Media Awards as well as GLAAD staff Rich Ferraro and Mark Hartnett. GLAAD staff Bill McDermott and Anthony Ramos serve as Supervising Producers, Mark Olson serves as Producer, and Spencer Harvey serves as Associate Producer. The 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Gilead and Ketel One Family-Made Vodka. GLAAD is also grateful to Platinum Partner Bud Light.
