Kudofest to be held in four ceremonies

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced the nominees for its 11th annual GLAAD Media Awards, which will take place in four ceremonies: in New York City April 2, in Los Angeles April 15, D.C. on May 13, and San Francisco June 3.

The awards honor individuals and projects in the media and entertainment industries “for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives,” according to the org.

The awards honor work in film, TV, music and theater, as well as print and online media (ranging from columns to comic books). Nearly 1,000 entries, covering Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 1999, were considered in 24 categories.

GLAAD is dedicated to promoting and ensuring fair, accurate, and inclusive representation of individuals and events in all media as a means of eliminating homophobia and discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.

The org expects more than 5,000 to attend the four ceremonies, raising more than $2.3 million for the org.

More than 100 corporate sponsors are expected, with Absolut Vodka as the Presenting Sponsor and David Bohnett and the Michael Palm Foundation as Platinum Underwriters.
