We've been honored to be nominated for a 2011 GLAAD Media Award in the Outstanding Blog category. gma-nominee-button-01.jpgYou can check out the nominees for all the other categories to see a star-studded list of media personalities and properties.

By recognizing and honoring media for outstanding images of the LGBT community, the GLAAD Media Awards serve as a benchmark for the media industry and complement GLAAD's work to bring LGBT images and stories to Americans.
"This year's nominees represent some of the images and stories at the root of the growing acceptance of our community and support for our equality," said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. "They also have created a benchmark for inclusion of our community that other media outlets should look to. As GLAAD celebrates twenty-five years of working with the media, we are proud to recognize this year's nominees and we challenge the industry to share more stories that reflect the diversity of our community and the challenges that gay and transgender people face."
This year GLAAD introduced a new category to recognize independent blogs, in recognition of the growing role of online media in shaping today's culture.

The other blogs up for the prize are Blabbeando, Rod2.0, Pam's House Blend, and Joe.My.God. They're all excellent sites that should be on your daily reading list. We're honored to be included with such worthy contenders.

Congratulations to all. You bring wide and diverse points of view from all of your contributors and I consider this a must-read.

I can't think of a more deserving group of collective nominees.

Great job!
