‘Bros’, Christina Aguilera among the winners in Los Angeles – Deadline

TV series A league of their own, what we do in the shadows and the movie siblings were among the winners of the 34th annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles last night.

Hosted by comedian and actress Margaret Cho, awards were presented at the ceremony in 15 of a total of 33 categories, with the remaining winners for select categories to be announced at GLAAD’s New York Ceremony on Saturday, May 13. Hulu, the official broadcast partner of the awards, will stream the event from Los Angeles on Wednesday, April 12.

Special award winners last night included Christina Aguilera, recipient of the Advocate for Change Award, presented by Club Q shooting survivor Michael Anderson; Bad Bunny, who accepted the Vanguard Award, presented by Ricky Martin; and Jeremy Pope, winner of the Stephen F. Kolzak Award presented by Gabrielle Union.

Accepting his award, Pope said, “As we continue to build and fight in the community, we know we are targeted. Our trans brothers and sisters, our rights are at stake. And sometimes I find my heart struggling with how to keep the faith. It’s rooms like this that remind me of the power of this community. How we will rise again and again for each other. Freedom. Release. Intentional love and support that outlasts the Underground Railroad my ancestors ran on. I refuse to spend my time on this earth in fear or living in shame. And I ask you to do the same.”

Aguilera said, in part, “I have a big problem with injustice, particularly towards the trans community that has faced so much hardship. So I always hoped that I could use my music to speak for others who didn’t have a voice. That’s why I’m so grateful to GLAAD for this award and for the work they do to make the LGBTQ community heard.”

  • his own league received the award for Best New TV Series hosted by Joel Kim Booster and Ts Madison
