The show, which profiles several of the 2013 Out100 honorees, was nominated in the Outstanding Special Class Special category. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the Daytime Emmy nominations today.
The program features such LGBT achievers as Edie Windsor, who brought the case that resulted in the Supreme Court gutting the so-called Defense of Marriage Act; Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, plaintiffs in another marriage equality lawsuit, which resulted in the repeal of California's Proposition 8; Oscar-winning writer and activist Dustin Lance Black; Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox; playwright Tarell McCraney; and mixed martial arts fighter Liz Carmouche. It includes commentary by Out editors Aaron Hicklin, Jerry Portwood, and Jason Lamphier, along with photographer Danielle Levitt. Out magazine compiles the list of 100 notable LGBT people every year.
Directed by Athena Maroulis and written by Robbie Imes, the show premiered in December. Paul Colichman, CEO of Here Media, and Stephen P. Jarchow, chairman of Here Media, are executive producers, and Josh Rosenzweig is co-executive producer. Out, The Advocate, and Here TV are all owned by Here Media.
The Daytime Emmys will be awarded June 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. See the full list of nominees here.
