LOS ANGELES, CA, January 21, 2011 ( – America’s Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) announced nominations yesterday for the TV shows, movies, and artists that promoted homosexuality the most in 2010.

GLAAD works with media to insert “LGBT images and stories” into popular culture through every means possible.  From movies to comics, blogs and newspaper columns, TV shows and artists, every year GLAAD acclaims the most “outstanding images of the LGBT community” in their Media Awards.

“This year’s nominees represent some of the images and stories at the root of the growing acceptance of our community and support for our equality,” said Jarrett Barrios, GLAAD president, according to the homosexualist news outlet Pink News.

Among films lauded by GLAAD are “The Kids Are Alright,” “I Love You Phillip Morris,” “Burlesque,” and “The Girl Who Played With Fire.”

Among drama series described as “outstanding” are “Degrassi,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Pretty Little Liars.”

Music artists acclaimed by GLAAD include Antony and the Johnsons, Kele Okereke, and Chely Wright. 

The popular TV show Glee has been nominated for best comedy series, along with Modern Family and Nurse Jackie. In September a homosexual Glee character was highlighted experiencing his “first gay kiss” and in October, Glee dedicated an episode to the issue of homosexual suicides.

“As GLAAD celebrates 25 years of working with the media, we are proud to recognise this year’s nominees, and we challenge the industry to share more stories that reflect the diversity of our community and the challenges that gay and transgender people face,” said president Barrios.
