With this latest episode, Drop Dead Diva continues its strong commitment to telling the stories of the LGBT community. Drop Dead Diva received the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards for the episode "Prom" in which Jane defends a lesbian couple who want to attend their high school prom together. The episode was based on the story of Constance McMillen, a Mississippi teen who was prevented from bringing her girlfriend as her date to senior prom. Drop Dead creator Josh Berman heard Constance' story at the GLAAD Media Awards the previous year and decided to turn it into an episode. The series also received nominations at the 22nd and 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards for an episode about a trans woman fighting a legal battle to inherit her wife's assets, and another speaking out against the FDA ban on sperm donations by gay and bisexual men.
