Woke up to the wonderful news that TransGriot has been nominated once again for a GLAAD Media Award in the Outstanding Blog category.
It it is my fifth overall nomination, and the fourth consecutive nomination since 2017. As you long time readers know, I won the Outstanding Blog award in 2018.
Once again the Outstanding Blog category is packed, with the other nominees being 2019 winner Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents, 2011 winner JoeMyGod, Gays With Kids and My Fabulous Disease.
Ever since this category started in 2011, there has never been a repeat winner of it. Will this be the year that happens for me or the other two previous award winners, or will Gays with Kids or My Fabulous Disease finally get their first wins?
There are also folks who got nominated for GLAAD media Awards in which I had a participatory role in.
