GLAAD Admits Error, Plans To Reinstate Queer Blog Award Category

by Jeremy Kinser February 11, 2016

bloggerIt’s become abundantly clear that we were wrong to remove the Outstanding Blog category, and we apologize. Although we cannot make changes to this year’s slate of categories and nominees, the Outstanding Blog category will be reinstated in 2017 with improved selection criteria that ensures grassroots LGBT voices are given the recognition they’re due. And like in years past, there will be no submission fee required in the category.

The contributions of LGBT bloggers and independent media have been critical to the advancement of this movement and, indeed, GLAAD’s mission. Eliminating the Outstanding Blog category was an affront to the tireless efforts of those whose work has been essential to putting a spotlight on the issues LGBT people face, and which too often goes overlooked. Removing the category was wrong, and we are committed to doing better.”

 

— GLAAD in a message posted on the watchdog org’s website in response to LGBT bloggers’ complaints over their exclusion from being considered for nominations this year
