Today GLAAD announced the nominees for the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, recognizing powerful and important media stories from 2013 - an historic year for LGBT equality. The GLAAD Media Awards honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD's work to amplify stories from the LGBT community and issues that build support for equality.

  1. So they haven't discovered web series yet?

    Anyway, congrats also to the "Husbands" team for their nomination in comic book category. I guess that's one way to get their attention: do a companion comic book .. lol!
