Nominations for the 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards have been announced, with FOX’s first responder drama 9-1-1: Lone Star receiving a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect their lives.

9-1-1: Lone Star features three main LGBTQ characters played by LGBTQ actors. Ronen Rubinstein, who came out as bisexual in 2021, and Rafael Silva, who is openly queer, portray paramedic T.K. Strand and officer Carlos Reyes, respectively. The couple made waves last season when they got engaged in the season 3 finale. Openly trans Brian Michael Smith portrays equally openly trans firefighter Paul Strickland. All three of them have had various storylines surrounding their backgrounds, taking a deeper look into their lives while being first responders in the LGBTQ community.
