It’s the most magical time of the year … awards season!
Break the popcorn out because awards season is basically the “American Gladiators” of shade throwing. With all the cameras about, subtle masters of the artform get to take center stage, flexing their eye-rolling muscles like bosses.
And let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment: we secretly live for the inevitable “who wore it better?” fashion moments, the look of shock and disdain on a celebrity’s face when they see their Gucci frock prancing down the red carpet on someone else. The key takeaway here is never buy your party-wear off the rack, dahling!
So, what’s not to love? There’s glitz, glamour … gays?! Well, at least with the GLAAD Media Awards, anyway! The annual event recognizes a diverse range of honorees and nominees who represent the very best in LGBTQ images, stories and advocacy in the media.
This year, XFINITY LGBTQ will be your one-stop shop for all things GLAAD. We’ve created a GLAAD Media Awards destination that features more than 100 GLAAD Award-winning and nominated titles spanning over 20 years. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, gurl. We’ve got you covered! My fellow LGBTQ editor and taste maker Dan Park and I have chosen our top picks from the full list of nominated content so you can start off your GLAAD binge-watching extravaganza.
