GLAAD hosted the first night of its two part GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles last night, handing out roughly half of its 30 awards! Kacey Musgraves was honored with the Vanguard Award for her work as an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community while Michaela Jaé Rodriguez received the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which honors an openly LGBTQIA+ individual who has made significant strides towards ending homophobia. Andrew Garfield presented her with the award.

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
