2020 GLAAD Media Awards: 'Schitt's Creek,' 'Pose' & More TV Winners
The GLAAD Media Awards, coordinated by the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, were held virtually for the 31st annual ceremony on Thursday, July 31. Hosted by Fortune Feimster and Gina Yashere, the online celebration also included performances by Chloe x Halle, Shea Diamond, and The Politician's Ben Platt.
During the event, winners were announced, including TV fan favorites Schitt's Creek and Pose. Though the ceremony was streamed via GLAAD's Facebook and YouTube pages, the awards ceremony will also air on television on Monday, August 3 on Logo at 8pm ET.
While honoring film, music, journalism and more, GLAAD also put a spotlight on some of TV's best. "During this era of political and cultural division, LGBTQ images in media are crucial in accelerating acceptance for the LGBTQ community and countering the dangerous rise in anti-LGBTQ rhetoric," said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "This year's award recipients, including Pose and Schitt's Creek, continue to bring necessary mainstream visibility to diverse voices within the LGBTQ community, ultimately raising the bar for LGBTQ inclusion and representation in media."
