Author: Trudy Ring

The Advocate won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Magazine Overall Coverage at Saturday night’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

The magazine bested Entertainment Weekly, People, POZ, and Variety in the category. The Advocate had also won the category in 2020.

“Thank you to GLAAD for this honor at a time when it’s especially incumbent upon LGBTQ+ news outlets to shine a light on conservative attacks on queer people with onslaught of anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ+ bills cropping up around the country,” said Advocate Editor in Chief Tracy E. Gilchrist. “I’m proud of and thankful for our small team of dedicated editors, writers, designers, and those in circulation, sales, and marketing who ensure the work we do makes an impact. It’s a gift to serve LGBTQ+ people and to be a part of The Advocate’s 55-year legacy.”

The GLAAD Media Awards, established in 1990, “honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues,” in the words of GLAAD. In addition to print and digital media, GLAAD honors film and television productions that excel at this purpose. This year’s nominees were published, released, or broadcast between January 1 and December 31, 2021, according to a press release.

There will be another ceremony May 6 at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.
