GLAAD gives TLS a shout-out in Variety

Speaking of the GLAAD Media Awards, President Neil Giuliano has a nice piece in Variety today outlining achievement in the last year, giving a shout-out to Transamerican Love Story. Excerpt of “From Oprah to the Oscars”:

Transgender firsts: Last year, primetime series “Ugly Betty” and “Dirty Sexy Money” plus daytime drama “All My Children” introduced transgender characters. Logo’s new dating show “Transamerican Love Story” just concluded its premiere season.

With luck, TLS will be up for a GLAAD nom next year.

David Mermelstein has another Variety piece on LGBT media issues in advance of the media awards. Excerpt of “2007 shows steady progress for gay cause”:

If there was big news in TV this past year, it was that GLAAD had finally relented and embraced the work of gay nets like Here and Logo, which the org had previously resisted honoring, arguing that fare from mainstream sources could better use the encouragement.

I certainly agree with this! Onward and upward, I say!
