GLAAD also announced its first ever TV Fan Favorite Award.

The winner will be revealed on GLAAD's social media immediately following the virtual ceremony of the GLAAD Media Awards on July 30.

The 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Since its inception in 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have grown to be the most visible annual LGBTQ awards show in the world, sending powerful messages of acceptance to audiences globally. The 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Delta Air Lines, Gilead, P&G, and Wells Fargo. For more information, visit www.glaad.org/mediaawards and follow @glaad and #glaadawards.

"Among this year's nominees are a wide range of stories and narratives about LGBTQ people of different races, ethnicities, genders, religions, and other identities that demonstrate the power of inclusion and diversity in fostering positive cultural change," said GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "As this year's Media Awards go virtual, we hope to send a powerful message to LGBTQ people that in the midst of this culturally and politically divisive time, our visibility and voices have never been more important."

In January, GLAAD announced over 175 nominees in 30 categories, including the returning category for Outstanding Broadway Production. The Outstanding Kids & Family Programming category expanded to ten nominees as a result of an increase in LGBTQ images across the kids and family television programming and an increase in GLAAD's work to advocate for inclusion in this genre. GLAAD also announced Special Recognition honors for Netflix's Special and for pioneering LGBTQ journalists Karen Ocamb and Mark Segal.

As racial and ethnic diversity continues to grow within the media industry, this year's nominees include powerful and impactful stories about LGBTQ people of color. Several of the nominated television series include series leads that are LGBTQ people of color, including: Euphoria, Killing Eve, The L Word: Generation Q, Pose, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dear White People, One Day at a Time, Superstore, Vida, and Tales of the City. A tip sheet with an additional breakdown of diversity as well as other facts and figures about this year's nominees is available at
