“American Horror Story”, Honey Boo Boo Among GLAAD Media Award Nominees

jessica-langeThe nominees for the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards are a diverse bunch, ranging from the sci-fi epic Cloud Atlas to perennial faves Glee and Modern Family and even Bring It On: The Musical.

“Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels,” said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick.  “This year’s nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues and friends.  Now more than ever, viewers not only accept gay and transgender characters and plot lines, they expect them – just as they both accept and expect LGBT people to be a valuable part of their everyday lives.”
