GLAAD happy about ‘Milk’

'Housewives,' 'Christine' win top TV prizes

Focus Features’ “Milk” took home the top prize for feature at the 20th annual GLAAD Media Awards, which honor media outlets for their portrayals of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

Prizes were handed out Saturday at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

On the TV front, ABC took home a pair of prizes for “Desperate Housewives,” which nabbed the prize for comedy, and “Brothers and Sisters,” which received the award for drama series.

Individual episode honors went to “Unidentified Funk” from CBS’ “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”

FunnyorDie.com’s “Prop 8: The Musical” and Showtime’s “The L Word” received special recognition.

“My Life on the D-List” star Kathy Griffin was feted with the Vanguard Award for her support of the gay community in the media and on her Bravo show.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and AIDS activist Cleve Jones presented Bishop Gene Robinson with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award. Robinson is the first openly gay bishop in the history of the Episcopal Church.

Additional awards will be presented May 9 at the Hilton San Francisco.
