2016 GLAAD Media Award Nominees And Predictions!

Beginning in 1990, the GLAAD awards has increased in prominence in the quarter of a century since its inception. Since its humble beginning the rise of queer media has exploded exponentially and continues to shift its way to mainstream media.

Now the majority of shows features at least one LGBT character, and certain series’ cater specifically to the gay community. No longer operating under the constrictions of Hays Code, Hollywoods gay cinema has grown steadily since the first awards show until today where we have actual options to honour!
