Towleroad Honored as 'Outstanding Blog' at GLAAD Media Awards


Hey! A huge thank-you to GLAAD on behalf of myself, Andy Towle, Michael Goff, Ari Ezra Waldman, Nathaniel Rogers, Andrew Belonsky, and our other contributors for decorating Towleroad at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which were presented tonight in New York City. We won the award for "Outstanding Blog," which we split with the estimable Mombian, the blog for lesbian moms. (Personal note: The documentary series my partner Penn Bullock and I co-produced for Anderson Cooper, "The Sissy Boy Experiments," also won in the category "Outstanding TV Journalism: Newsmagazine." Thank you, GLAAD!)

Congrats, too, to the other nominated blogs, all of which are very worth reading: Bilerico Project, The New Civil Rights Movement, and Rod 2.0

  4. Congrats Towleroad, I will agre your a great blog which I read every day. But I still think Glaad is a organization completely out of touch with reality and completely irrelevant to the gay community at large. The vast majority of gays could give two shits about them, the few times we hear about them is when they are harping over something dumb!

  5. No other blog deserves to be called
    "outstanding" more than Towleroad.

    Thank you for all the hard work that's
    required to earn this decoration.

    Congratulations! Let's own 2012!!!

  10. Congratulations Gentlemen! Not just those of you that run and write this blog, but all of you readers also, that read, post, vote, etc. to educate people like me that usually just lurk here. I'm a middle-aged, white, straight, female and I read everyday too. Thank you for making my world a better place to live in. I sincerely hope that you all are afforded everything you deserve, sooner rather than later, please don't stop fighting.

  13. GLAAD is a waste of space. It is selective in its advocacy and tends to attack the little minnows rather than the big minnows.

    I was actually shocked that hip hop mogul Russell Simmons was at the GLAAD awards considering his role in promoting the hip-hop music genre, a genre of music that made it acceptable for mainstream music to call us faggots and to threaten violence against us.

    Shame on GLAAD and shame on Russell Simmons.

  14. A perfect choice for the award. Through this blog I have encountered wonderful people right here in real contact life which makes this blog an inestimable treasure. Now I know that there is such a thing as an online commnity which lives, breathes, hollers, fights, laughs, throws fits, charms, informs and vexes its partners. It's part of me and I'm GLAAD.

  15. Congrats, Andy, and all the others! Well deserved for year after year of outstanding blogging. Keep it up!!

    Now if only we could do something about all the ignorant commenters.. Jason, go do some research on Russell Simmons and listen to some real hip-hop before you start spewing your bs.

  16. The hard work you guys do should be well recognized so you deserve EVERY accolade!!! GLAAD certainly is an entity and I am often frustrated with them but their new "Commentator" cause is something I can get behind.
