The Advocate’s PrEP Series Nominated for GLAAD Media Award


The series educates and debunks myths about the HIV prevention strategy.

The Advocate has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.

The LGBT news source received a nomination in the category of Outstanding Digital Journalism Article for "31 Days of PrEP," a month-long series of articles that researched and debunked myths about the practice of taking medication daily for HIV prevention.

Other nominees in this category include The Root ("Black Parents, Gay Sons and Redefining Masculinity"), Outsports ("Conner Mertens Came Out to His College Football Team. Now He Comes Out Publicly"), Al-JazeeraAmerica ("A Nun's Secret Ministry Brings Hope to the Transgender Community"), and Buzzfeed ("A Year Later, 'Nothing' Has Changed Since Transgender Woman Islan Nettles was Killed").

Out magazine, which is owned by The Advocate's parent company, Here Media, was also nominated, for Outstanding Magazine Overall Coverage. It was selected alongside Essence, Glamour, Sports Illustrated, and Time.

The mission of the GLAAD Media Awards, for which nominations were announced Wednesday morning, is to "recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives."

In addition to journalism, the LGBT organization honors music, film, and television. The Imitation Game, Love Is Strange, Pride, Dear White People, Life Partners, and Lilting are all nominees in the film categories.

Outstanding television nominations include ABC's How to Get Away With Murder, HBO's Game of Thromes, ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, Fox's Glee, Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, and Amazon's Transparent.
