GLAAD Hands Ricky Martin The Statue The Recording Academy Won’t

The GLAAD Media Awards, where celebrities are handed trophies for RSVPing and television networks earn accolades for their shows based on how many zeroes their underwriting checks have, were held last night in NYC. Unlike year’s past, there are only going to be three GLAAD award ceremonies this year (thrice the fundraising!) instead of the usual four, so if you didn’t get a chance to see Ricky Martin and Andy Cohen throwing back “ROKK vodka cocktails” (we got paid $10 to write that), there’s still Los Angeles and San Francisco. But last night in New York, in an awards ceremony not televised on LOGO, True Blood won something, as did Martin (taking home both an establishment trophy and winning for his appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show), and Anderson Cooper 360. I think it was for being gayish?

    Congratulations Ricky!

  • antonyvietnam


    I love you, Ricky

  • David

    Of course you’re not evolved enough to mention that The Advocate won two GLAAD awards.

  • Matt

    I’ve just noticed your “let’s trash Ricky” title.

    For your information, Ricky Martin got Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album and three Latin Grammy Awards.

  • Jeffree

    @David: The oustanding LGBT Blog award went to…..Joe.MýGod. Q’ty didn’t even get a nom—hmmm, wonder why? Lol.

  • Chupa Chups

    I am surprised. I believed that “bisexual woman for pay” will be awarded.

  • Shannon1981

    @Jeffree: Is there a reason for Queerty’s hatred of GLAAD? Seems they never have anything good to say.

  • Mattybear

    @Shannon1981: Ah, because GLAAD has never given Queerty an award. It makes some people bitter and angry. Remember we are all one big happy family, not a group of bitter lgbt people snipping at each other. (sarcasm off)

    Or maybe I’m just too hung over to think anything positive today.

  • Shannon1981

    @Mattybear: LOL. IDK, I just really sometimes get bothered by the hate for groups and/or people who really are trying to help us. I wouldn’t think a gay blog would be hating on a group like GLAAD. But,every time GLAAD issues any press release, Queerty has a snarty response to it. I get that this is a snark blog, but some issues aren’t to be made fun of.

  • Max Campbell

    Bec jeffree is a vile crap.

  • Soupy

    I love Jeffree. He is my favourite fake bi sex partner!

  • Max Campbell


    He is your favourite alter ego.

  • Soupy

    Could you pick a favourite of your 6? It’s like Sophie’s Choice.

  • Jonathan

    Love Queerty. But, at least take a look at what Anderson Cooper 360 got an award for. Go and look. I think it’s a little unfair to try to be ironic. Again, I love you guys, I do. That little tidbit just wasn’t cool.

  • Jeffree

    @Shannon1981: MattyBear answered your question better than I could have (thanks MattyBear!) GLAAD does some good things, but Q’ty prefers to snark at allies even more so than foes. This site wasn’t nom’d for a GLAAD award, so Q’ty prefers to take the low road!

    @Soupy: Please, always remember, comrade that I am the best looking of all your many sockpuppets. Troll Maxima Abramova Campbellova fears that I divert your attention away from appreciation of the his beloved bi-p0rns, because he prefers us to be man hating lesbians imposing double standards onto popular culture…..Or something like that.

  • Chupa Chups

    Yep, bisexual women for pay is our HOPE!!!)))))

  • Soupy

    Oh Jeffree, I share everything with you. But I wish that you wouldn’t hog all the christina crap.

  • Shannon1981

    @Jeffree: Gotcha, and yes thanks MattyBear! I just really wish Queerty liked GLAAD more. But whatever, can’t have our way about everything.

  • Adonis-of-Fire

    Ricky’s boyfriend is FU-GLY
    Regular cuban/puerto rican queen trying to look macho with a goatee. Bitch, please.

  • Jeffree

    @Adonis-of-fire: Race-baiting again? Expected, yet still tacky. Get some help before you implode from your own misery.

  • Peter

    WARNING!!! Warning!!!! Save all bisexual sluts!! Stop homophobia! Lesbian porn is our method against homophobia!!!!

  • jason

    Queerty is non-PC. It doesn’t get into bed with anyone. You can be Right or Left and you’ll still be criticized.

    It’s refreshing to come here and read points of view that haven’t been pre-packaged and polished according to the Gay Inc school of niceties and “not wanting to hurt our friends”. The only way we’re going to win full equality is if we are as merciless with the friends who mis-treat us as we are with the enemies who mis-treat us.

    As for GLAAD, I think it’s very limited in what it actually has achieved. It may as well become defunct.

  • Jeffree

    @jason: How “merciless” do you suggest we be? Please suggest concrete ideas so we can follow your suggestion. Otherwise you’re just floating fluffy concepts like a sleazy politician.

  • first things first

    @Adonis-of-Fire: Boyfriend is great in bed.

  • Chupa Chups

    Jeffree-soupy-houpy-justice is a lesbian fat silly conformist who hate gay guys and eat Christina’s crap!

  • John1

    Jeffree, shut up!

  • MaxChupaJasonOlgaPeterJohn1

    Soupy JeeffreeJusticeShannon you are all homophobic crap trolls. Your lives were destroyed watching fake bi porn. Leave us alone. It’s hard for all of us to move around in this body.

  • Soupy JeeffreeJusticeShannon

    SaVE all bisexual sluts!!!! We want to eat Christina’s crap!!! Lesbian porn is our method against homophobia!

  • Jeffree

    GLAAD needs to create an award like the Razzies, where they celebrate the best of the worst of LGBT media. Any nominations?

  • NYCbud

    Well, anything on junky Queerty has to be taken suspiciously, but they’re no worse than the other gay blogs. I mean, really…Towleroad makes up stories, Billerico is a bunch of malcontent goofballs. Joe My God isn’t too bad, as far as more careful reporting. But ALL of them are for a bunch of unemployed readers with too much time on their hands. And GLAAD itself is a complete joke. Could you imagine giving an award to Ricky Martin instead of someone like Maurice Sendak?? Half the children in America grew up with the beloved Where The Wild Things Are. Not that someone like Sendak would be bothered with a GLAAD party, but still…How much $$$ did they waste on that stupid party anyway? Those doing the most for same-sex equality are those uncelebrated guys and gals who are out in their own neighborhoods, moreso than the conceited media bores ever do.
