The annual Gay/Lesbian American Music Awards will no longer be produced, according to a statement released by the organization. Since 1995, the group has honored achievement in music made by self-identified gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered recording artists. We hope the end of GLAMA isnt construed to mean that music made by out musicians is not worthy of recognition, said GLAMA founder and executive director Michael Mitchell, who cited the rising costs of production and administration as the reasons for the closure. GLAMA honorees have included k.d. lang, Boy George, Meshell Ndegeocello, the Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge, Luscious Jackson, Anthony Rapp, Bob Mould, and Rufus Wainwright.
