GLAAD Media Award Nominees Have Been Announced
The GLAAD Media Awards nominees have been announced, which includes a category for comic books. The awards “recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives.”
The awards tend to recognize “mainstream” representation, so you’ll rarely see indie comics on the list.
Below are the nominees for comics, and comic related other media. You can find the full list at their site.
Professor Marston and the Wonder Women from Annapurna Pictures was nominated for “Outstanding Film – Wide Release.” The film is a loose history of the creation of Wonder Woman.
Wynonna Earp, which is based on a comic series, was nominated for “Outstanding Drama Series.”
Legion‘s episode “Chapter 8” was nominated for “Outstanding Individual Episode (in a series without a regular LGBTQ character).”
