The 24th Annual GLAAD Media Award nominations have been announced this morning. And each year, the GLAAD Media Awards celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and their allies on TV, in film, and in the news. These are the images and stories that bring the LGBT community closer to equality.
In the Outstanding Daily Drama category it will be Days of our Lives nominated for Sonny and Will’s love story featuring Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith vs. The Bold and the Beautiful with Caroline’s My Two Moms story featuring: Crystal Chappell, Joanna Johnson, and Linsey Godfrey who have been recognized for their achievements.
In addition, HBO’s vampire saga True Blood was nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series category and will go up against: Smash, Degrassi, Grey’s Anatomy and the L.A. Complex!
The GLAAD Media Awards will be handed out in three ceremonies: New York on March 16th, in Los Angeles on April 20th and in San Francisco on May 11th. Last year, the Daytime category was handed out in ceremonies in San Francisco. You can view the complete list of GLAAD Media Award nominees here.

And in a world that stresses diversity and the importance now more than every of equality among all human beings, would you like to see a fully fleshed out story encompassing more gay characters on the other current daytime soaps? Yes, General Hospital’s Felix was just brought on the canvas too, but we have to wait to see if more of a story also develops for him, or not. Weigh-in!
