The annual ceremony honors outstanding representations in news, entertainment, and social media that have portrayed the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in just, precise and all-encompassing representations.
In its first annual Media Awards, GLAAD acknowledged 34 nominees in 7 categories. In 2012, GLAAD had their 23rd Annual Media Awards, which takes place in three cities: Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.
