Over the past 20 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have increased dramatically in size and scope.  At the first GLAAD Media Awards in 1990, there were 34 nominees in seven categories.  This year, we have 151 nominees in 25 English and 10 Spanish-language categories – in addition to Special Honorees in each city. 

We are proud to recognize all of this year’s outstanding nominees.  Due to time limitations for each show, we are able to present only a selection of our 35 categories onstage during the GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies.  Below is a list of categories currently scheduled to be given onstage at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards.  These are selected to reflect the range of GLAAD’s work – a mix of print, broadcast and online news, entertainment and Spanish-language media..

As always, unforeseen production issues could cause this plan to change.  For the most current list of awards being given onstage, please continue to visit

Categories not listed below are not scheduled to be presented on stage.  Recipients in these categories will be announced in a press release immediately following the New York event on March 24, 2012.
