Docuseries starring transgender characters have dominated the reality TV category at this year’s GLAAD Media Awards.
Last year, transgender stories became a trend in reality TV and reflected a growing awareness around trans issues that was aided by Olympic champion-turned-reality star Caitlyn Jenner’s highly publicized transition.
Two other trans-focused programs, Logotv.com’s Beautiful As I Want To Be and Amazon Instant Video’s This Is Me, will receive special recognition awards.
Meanwhile, the nominees for Outstanding Documentary are Netflix’s Tig, The Film Collaborative’s Tab Hunter Confidential, Strand Releasing’s Mala Mala and the PBS docs Kumu Hina and Limited Partnership.
The winners of the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards will be announced on April 2.
The awards recognize inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender stories and issues across film, TV, digital media and journalism.
