SF GLAAD Media Awards: Dianna Agron Babysits; Grey’s Anatomy, Facebook Honored

Last night at the 23rd annual GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco, Facebook became the first social-media company to win an award from the anti-defamation group.

”Facebook has set the bar high for ensuring LGBT people have a safe space to connect with friends and family,” said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick.

Other honorees at the event, hosted by Glee‘s Dianna Agron, included Grey’s Anatomy for television drama, Days of Our Lives for daytime series and HuffPo’s Max J. Rosenthal for digital journalism. Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes received the Golden Gate Award and Wells Fargo was given the Corporate Leader Award.

In addition to emceeing the ceremony, Agron (right) did a little babysitting, too. Jennifer Tyrrell, the lesbian mom ousted by the Boy Scouts, tweeted how the actress entertained her sons:

Had the BEST time at ?#glaadawards?! @DiannaAgron played with our kids the whole nite! She is AMAZING! WOW! pic.twitter.com/87t407sI

Winners in other categories were announced in previous ceremonies in New York City and Los Angeles.

Check back with us soon for pictures from the star-studded gala in San Francisco.

      Fuck GLAAD and their ultra PC BS that borders on censorship. They do all LGBT people a great disservice.

      @Drew: Please elucidate Drew – you appear to be very angry about something.

      The GLAAD awards like pennies…totally useless, and yet you always seem to end up with a handful!

      I GET WHAT DREW IS SAYING. JUST LOOK AT THE JASON ALEXANDER GLADD THREAD HERE ON QUEETY. OR HOW GLADD CALLS ALL SORTS OF THINGS TRANSPHOBIC WHEN THEY ARE JUST JOKES OR ABOUT DRAG QUEENS, AND YET GLADD DOES NOTHING ABOUT ACTUAL DISCRIMINATION TOWARDS BISEXUALS, GAYS, OR LESBIANS.

      @ Tastey Goodies- GLAAD does nothing about discrimination? Umm,this posts refereces the lesbian scout leader who was ousted for being gay – a story none of us would have heard about were it not for GLAAD getting in into the media.

      GLAAD likes to think it is the voice of the gay, lesbian, bisexuals, and transgendered community, but I assure you they aren’t. They have no sense of humor, and add more embarrassment than anything.

      All this ultra PC shit has to end.

      GLAAD is like PETA: They have very good intentions but go so far overboard in their rhetoric that it marginalizes the cause more than it helps it.

      glaad need to get thicker skin. seems to me that all it does is complain about comedy shows and not much else. Oh but they’ll GLADDly take the money from LGBT people!

      I think many of you are confused about the purpose of a media watchdog organization.
      GLAAD’s job is to report about the representation of LGBT folks on television, in films and other forms of media.

      GLAAD is not a political advocacy organization or services organization. Leave that stuff to HRC and Trevor Project, et al.

      GLAAD does its job very well.

      If you want advocacy, why no focus your energy on getting involved with an LGBT advocacy organization.

      If you are concerned about legal representation or providing services for LGBT, why not get involved with or support organizations who do THAT.
