GLAAD, the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) media advocacy organization, announced that the Outstanding Broadway Production category will return to the GLAAD Media Awards beginning this year with the 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards!
Nominees for the 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards will be announced later this month and the award ceremony will take place in New York City on March 19, 2020 and in Los Angeles on April 16.
The GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Currently, GLAAD recognizes nominees in 29 English and Spanish-Language categories including Outstanding Comedy Series, Drama Series, Film-Wide Release, Kids & Family Programming, Video Game, Newspaper Article, Digital Journalism Article, and Music Artist.
According to the press release, for the first time since 2014, the GLAAD Media Awards will also recognize LGBTQ-inclusive content on Broadway. The Outstanding Broadway Production category comes after a recent surge of powerful LGBTQ-inclusive shows on Broadway that featured diverse LGBTQ characters and illuminated LGBTQ issues.
The GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Broadway Production will be given to theatrical productions or performances that run in a professional Broadway theater and open during the calendar year. Revivals may be considered within the limits of the category description; however, in accordance with the overall GLAAD Media Awards criteria, the revival should include bold and original content.
