Music

With awards season well underway, LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD is ready to celebrate queer talent in the entertainment industry with the 2024 GLAAD Media Awards.

On Wednesday (Jan. 17), GLAAD announced the full list of nominees for their annual awards, which will take place in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 14, and in New York City on Saturday, May 11. Among the two major music categories at the annual ceremony, a total of 20 openly queer artists received plaudits.

In the awards’ main music category for outstanding music artist, GLAAD nominated Miley Cyrus, Janelle Monae, Boygenius, Billy Porter, Sam Smith, Troye Sivan, Brandy Clark, Kim Petras, Renee Rapp and Victoria Monet for their albums released in 2023.

Meanwhile, in the outstanding breakthrough music artist category — which celebrates new acts that earned new levels of mainstream success in 2023 — GLAAD named Chappell Roan, David Archuleta, Fancy Hagood, G Flip, Ice Spice, Iniko, Jade LeMac, The Scarlet Opera, Slayyyter and UMI as nominees.

Billboard also received two nominations at this year’s GLAAD Media Awards: one for outstanding print article for our June 2023 cover featuring Maren Morris in conversation with drag artists Sasha Colby, Symone, Eureka O’Hara and Landon Cider, and another for outstanding magazine overall coverage (digital and print).

In a statement released with the nominations, GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis congratulated this year’s honorees and celebrated the organization’s long history of supporting the LGBTQ community. “For 35 years, the GLAAD Media Awards has provided the global stage for LGBTQ creators, alongside industry talent and leaders to be celebrated and supported,” she said. “At a time when the LGBTQ community is under attack by false narratives and misinformation … this year’s nominees powerfully reflect the realities of LGBTQ existence today, in our communities and around the globe.”
