GLAAD fetes 'Boys,' MTV, John

NEW YORK — MTV Networks, ABC’s “20/20” and Kimberly Peirce’s “Boys Don’t Cry” were among nine honorees at the New York edition of the 11th annual GLAAD Media Awards ceremony, held Sunday in Manhattan.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation fetes individuals and media outlets who promote “fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the media.”

Elton John was honored with the Vito Russo Award and Marlo Thomas with the Excellence in Media Award, both of which recognize efforts to enhance visibility and understanding of the LGBT community.

MTV’s “Sounds Like First Love” campaign won for advertising, “Boys Don’t Cry” for limited release film, and “20/20” (episode: “Billy Bean”) for TV jour-nalism.

Bebe Neuwirth, Hilary Swank, Julianne Moore, Willem Dafoe, Kyle MacLachlan, Parker Posey, Molly Shannon, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick were among the event’s performers and presenters.
