At the New York ceremony, which took place a month after the Los Angeles ceremony, GLAAD announced the winners live on stage for drama series, TV journalism, children’s and family programs, and children’s programming.

The ceremony featured appearances from Michael R. Jackson and Dove Cameron, with anti-LGBTQ legislation recently surfacing and being tackled by hosts Laverne Cox, Cynthia Nixon, Tommy Dorfman, Anthony Rapp, the seven stars of season seven of Drag Race All Stars and the hosts of the night. There was also a sneak preview of the upcoming reboot of Queer as Folk.

New York-born Wilson Cruz took home the Vito Russo Award, which is presented to an LGBTQ media professional who has made a significant difference in accelerating the adoption of LGBTQ.

The GLAAD Media Awards honor fair, accurate and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues.

At the LA ceremony, Kacey Musgraves received the Vanguard Award from Ben Platt, and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez received the Stephen F. Kolzak Award from Andrew Garfield.
