GLAAD Announces Media Award Finalists

The finalists for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards have just been announced. The awards are given annually to “recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.”

While none of our local newspapers were nominated, Frank Bruni of the New York Times is up for Outstanding Newspaper Columnist. Below are the New York based magazine finalists, but congrats to all those who received recognition.
