Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association Dorian Awards Nominations

Posted on January 11, 2018

 

Darlings, if you listen to our podcast on anything approaching a regular basis (and thank you if you do), then you’ve probably heard us proudly and gratefully talking about our membership in GALECA, the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association. They’ve released the nominations for this year’s Dorian Awards and, since we’ll be voting on them, we thought you’d like to see a rundown. Typical for the gays, the awards categories can get creative and interesting in ways more conventional awards don’t.

We won’t be publishing our picks for any of these nominees, but feel free to attempt to influence us by singing their praises or making your own picks.
