GLAAD Welcomes Gay Media

GLAAD’s become more versatile, readers! The media watchdog group got a bunch of flack earlier this year for banning gay media from its Media Awards.

Neil Giuliano must have learned his lesson, because the GLAAD president announced yesterday that gay media will be allowed to participate in the annual event:

With the expansion of cable channels and niche programming, LGBT created and consumed media is more readily available than ever before. Our Board has decided to incorporate LGBT media submissions into the existing competitive categories. We welcome the opportunity for LGBT media to submit their journalism and programming for consideration.

And it only took nineteen years to reach full inclusion for the “fair and inclusive” awards show.
