In addition to the Variety’s nomination for Overall Editorial Excellence among B2B publications, the magazine scored bids for best full issue in B2B media & entertainment for its Trans Hollywood Issue, whose pages are entirely dedicate to trans representation within the entertainment industry, and the Nov. 13, 2018, issue featuring a Q&A and photo spread with Lady Gaga. The Trans Hollywood issue was published on Aug. 7, 2018,  and features extensive profiles on prominent trans actors including cover stars Chaz Bono, Laverne Cox and Alexandra Billings as well as an open letter penned by GLAAD calling for increased representation in industry. The issue featuring Lady Gaga features a cover story by Ramin Setoodeh that delves into Gaga’s experience on “A Star is Born,” her relationship with Bradley Cooper, and the future of her career.
