The NAACP recently announced the nominees for the 43rd Image Awards. This year’s nominations recognize numerous films and TV series with LGBT characters and LGBT-inclusive storylines as well as 2012 GLAAD Media Awards nominees.
Reality TV personality Jim Bob Duggar was at an event for former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and criticized the Girl Scouts of America for its transgender-inclusive policies. Duggar said, "Our family loves Girl Scout cookies and I don't think allowing a boy in the Girl Scouts is a good thing."
The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has named the film "J. Edgar," Lady Gaga's album "Born This Way" and a TV interview by David Letterman with Chaz Bono among its nominees for the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards.
