GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics Dorian Awards Nominations

Posted on February 23, 2022

Darlings, the nominations for the queerest of awards season awards, the Dorian Awards, are out and for once, we’re not going to say a thing about who should win or who may have been snubbed. Not because we’re shy or reticent or afraid of blowback, but because this is the one award of the season where we go from being spectators to participants. As GALECA members, we’ll be voting on every single one of these categories. Now’s your chance to influence us! Let us know who you’d pick and why. We may even get our minds changed on a few of these.
