Queer entertainers, celebrities, influencers, and some very special guests gathered to honor the very best of media and culture and the brightest LGBTQ stars and innovators at the 2022 Queerties Awards in Hollywood last night.
While the pandemic kept us apart last year, this year was all about celebrating the future. Among the VIPS to walk the red carpet were several past and current Queerties Awards nominees and winners, including Haaz Sleiman, Ronen Rubinstein, Bob the Drag Queen and Willam, plus Robin de Jesús, George M. Johnson, and Philemon Chambers, among others.
Also in attendance was Drag Race star Denali, who took home the award for Future All-Star, and Jeopardy champ Amy Schneider, who won this year’s Badass Award. Our girl Trixie Mattel also made an appearance, accepting the award for Indie Music Video for her song “Hello Hello”, as well as the legendary Bianca Del Rio, who Queerties Awards voters crowned Drag Royalty.
The dazzling star-studded spectacle was hosted by the always fabulous Mo Heart and Queerty’s own Dan Tracer, and featured an incredible performance by Beginners. The very special Queerty Icon Award was presented to Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, who was also nominated for her music video “Something To Say.”

never heard of them, except for the older gays. Not Old.
seek help!!! fast!!!!!!!
You have people from movies, Broadway, TV, covering a lot of ground.
I fooled around with older gay third from left years ago. He is so shallow and phony he didn’t divorce his rich hubby for years because “we stayed together for the sake of the dogs.”
Biggest stars ? Never heard of any of them..I guess like porn everybody is a “star “
RIGHT!!! luckily it was a sea of shallowness so no body drowned
Looks like fun! I’m especially glad to see Haz Sleiman and Amy Schneider were there. Schneider’s run on Jeopardy is one for the ages. Too bad winner Lil Nas X wasn’t there, but he’s been lowkey since late last year. I hope he’s doing OK.
No disrespect intended towards Queerty, but y’all must have pretty low standards if THIS is what you consider “the brightest stars in queer media.” Let’s be real, you guys really meant “these are the people in queer media who weren’t busy that day” but that’s not as clickbaity of a headline, now is it?
The one I did recognize is Michaela Jaé Rodriguez or better yet, known as M J Rodriguez who won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a TV Drama for “Pose” and the first transgender person to ever do this. Wonderful!!!
