Adam Lambert, Empire Nominated for 2016 Glaad Media Awards

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert is nominated in the Outstanding Music Artist category and the TV shows Nashville and Empire for Outstanding Drama series for the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

For the first time in nearly a decade, the GLAAD Media Awards will be televised exclusively on Logo in a one-hour special premiering in April 2016.

“Logo is honored and proud to partner with GLAAD to celebrate the people and media who best represent the LGBT community,” said Chris McCarthy, General Manager of VH1 and Logo Networks.

The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD’s work to accelerate acceptance of the LGBT community.

The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on April 2, 2016 at The Beverly Hilton, and in New York on May 14 at the Waldorf Astoria New York. Special Honorees for each city will be announced in coming weeks.
