• Astonishing X-Men:Northstar Nominated For GLAAD Award

    Astonishing X-Men was among the nominations for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.
    Nominated in the 'Outstanding Comic Book' category, Astonishing X-Men featured the headline-hitting wedding of Northstar and Kyle.

    The GLAAD Media Awards celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and our allies on TV, in film, and in the news. These are the images and stories that bring us closer to equality.
    The Awards also support GLAAD’s work every day to grow acceptance and understanding of LGBT people. From working alongside an Ohio mom to put an end to the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policies to helping LGBT families across the country share their stories of love and commitment with millions, GLAAD is leading the conversation for LGBT equality.
    Nearly 700 GLAAD Media Awards voters contribute to the selection of award recipients in each category via online balloting. Voters are comprised of three groups: GLAAD staff and board, GLAAD Alliance and Media Circle members, and GLAAD volunteers & allies (which includes previous Special Honorees, key media industry allies, volunteers from the Nominating Juries, and Event Production teams).
    The votes of these three groups result in a final slate of award recipients, which is then given to GLAAD’s Review Panel for certification. The Review Panel is comprised of the GLAAD Board co-chairs, senior GLAAD program and communications staff, and media industry experts.
    The members of the Review Panel are expected to view all of the nominees in each category. The final slate of award recipients is certified by the Review Panel, based on the results of the online balloting and their own expert opinions.
    Award recipients are announced at events held annually in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
