This year several GLAAD Media Awards nominees addressed efforts to bring equality to LGBT people in other parts of the world, including Sense8, Mala Mala, Essence Magazine and Newsweek.
These nominees both amplify the oft-erased voices of LGBT Southerners, and change hearts and minds by bringing their multifaceted experiences to the forefront of the American public.
Carol, Grandma, Tangerine, Empire, Sense8, The Bold and The Beautiful, SportsCenter, Essence Magazine, Troye Sivan among nominees
Many of this year's nominated GLAAD Media Awards nominees reflect the stories of LGBT people of color.
A growing number of entertainment's moments captured well-rounded, responsible, and diverse depictions of bisexuality, and GLAAD is celebrating those moments with Media Award nominations.
Among the nominees for the 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards, several included stories of LGBT people living with HIV, including The Prancing Elites Project, Looking, and How To Get Away With Murder.
Nominees for the 2016 Oscars were announced this morning with LGBT-inclusive films, creators garnering a handful of nominations.
