The 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards recognize media for their fair, accurate and inclusive portrayals of LGBTQ people and issues. Since its inception in 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have become the world’s most visible annual LGBTQ awards show, sending powerful messages of acceptance to audiences around the world. The 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Gilead Sciences, Inc., Google Pixel, Hyundai and Ketel One Family Made Vodka. Delta Air Lines is a major sponsor of the events, Nike and Sony Music Group are official sponsors, and Comcast NBCUniversal Telemundo, Meta and Netflix are Titanium sponsors.

“This year’s GLAAD Media Awards come at a time when LGBTQ visibility and storytelling may be the frontline response to a dangerous rise in anti-LGBTQ legislation across the country,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President- CEO of GLAAD. “Our nominees and winners, including Pose, Sesame Street, Eternals, Hacks, Lil Nas X, We’re Here and so many journalists and news producers showcase the beautiful diversity of LGBTQ people. At a time when we have the no longer needed, these stories, these stories speak out against hate, enlighten, entertain and send an undeniable message: we’re not going anywhere.”

Nominees for the 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards were published, aired or broadcast between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021. For a full list of nominees, click here.
