The GLAAD Media Awards search to “honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues.” There will probably be two award ceremonies: one in Los Angeles on March 28 and one other in New York City on May 4. Recently, it was announced that the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody could be eliminated as an Outstanding Film—Wide Release nominee because of allegations of sexual assault made in opposition to the movie’s director Bryan Singer.
