Fire Island and Anything's Possible tie, We're Here slays Drag Race at 2023 GLAAD Media Awards
The GLAAD Media Awards are, fittingly, bi. Bicoastal, that is.
After handing out awards to Bros, What We Do in the Shadows, Christina Aguilera, and official The Gays™ mascot Jennifer Coolidge in Los Angeles on March 31, GLAAD crossed the country to celebrate more outstanding LGBTQ+ work and performances at its New York show on May 13.

At the New York event, hosted by What We Do in the Shadows' Harvey Guillén, Jonathan Van Ness was recognized with the Vito Russo Award, presented by ALOK, and Maren Morris received the Excellence in Media Award, introduced by Cynthia Lee Fontaine and Alyssa Edwards.
