I’ll be off the grid today attending the GLAAD Media Awards in New York. My multimedia story Landmark moments in Gay Hollywood, produced and written for Entertainment Weekly, is nominated in the Digital Journalism: Multimedia category. Other nominees include CNN, The Advocate and NewAmericaMedia.org. I honestly feel like Saoirse Ronan at the Oscars, but I will post the results later tonight.
Update: Congratulations to CNN and to all the winners from last night’s awards. It sounds cliché but I was simply happy to be there. I felt honored to be in a room full of journalists that were so invested in the news they reported. The GLAAD Awards will air soon on Bravo.
