Marvel released a statement of congratulations to the creators of the most recent series of "Young Avengers" on receiving the award for Outstanding Comic Book at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
GLAAD Media Award nominees highlight racial diversity in LGBT portrayals in news and entertainment #GLAADAwards
This morning, GLAAD announced the nominees for the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards and many of this year's nominees included out characters of color telling important stories and reflecting the true diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
Though the number of new LGBT characters on TV fell slightly this year, there were still quite a few noteworthy, new ones in entertainment media that truly stood out from the crowd. Some of them were a big hit with audiences while others broke molds and defied stereotypes, but all of them helped make 2013 increasingly diverse when it came to LGBT representations.
