Following the announcement of the nominees for the 27th annual GLAAD Awards - which recognise and honour media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities - GLAAD XEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis said: "For nearly three decades, the GLAAD Media Awards have propelled inclusion in media and driven LGBT acceptance forward. This year's nominees have raised the bar for creating thoughtful and diverse LGBT images and storylines, deepening audiences' understanding of LGBT people and accelerating acceptance across the world."

The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on April 2 at The Beverly Hilton and in New York on May 14 at the Waldorf Astoria New York.
