The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community and the issues that affect their lives. They also fund GLAAD's work to amplify stories from the LGBTQ community that build support for equality.
