GLAAD nominates Frank Ocean for Media Award
Posted January 16, 2013
R&B phenom Frank Ocean is among many high-profile nominees for this year's GLAAD Media Awards.
The LGBT advocacy group has singled out Ocean, as well as Gossip, Scissor Sisters, Rufus Wainwright and Adam Lambert, in the music category for the annual awards, which "recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives."
Ocean made waves in the music world last year when he came out in a blog post as bisexual just ahead of the release of his Grammy-nominated debut, Channel Orange.
In television, popular shows Glee, Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Smash and True Blood are among the nominations. Film nominees include The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Cloud Atlas, My Sister's Sister and ParaNorman.
Journalism nominees include Good Morning America, Sports Illustrated, Seventeen magazine and USA TODAY. The three-part Media Awards ceremony will be held March 16 in New York, April 20 in Los Angeles and May 11 in San Francisco.
