‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Wins GLAAD Award 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 our lives. The 34th annual awards ceremony was held and recognized even more media and talent that have had an impact on the community, and FOX’s 9-1-1: Lone Star won its first award!

9-1-1: Lone Star has won for Outstanding Drama Series. The 9-1-1 spinoff includes three male leads, Ronen Rubinstein, Rafael Silva, and Brian Michael Smith, who identify in the LGBTQ+ community and play characters that do so as well. Not only that, but the series takes time to really dig into the backstories and focus on each character. Rubinstein and Silva’s T.K. Strand and Carlos Reyes are set to be married in an upcoming episode. Meanwhile, Smith’s Paul Strickland recently found himself struggling in a new relationship with an old friend after she kept bringing up the past and memories pre-transition. And these are just recent storylines.

Check out our Pride Month Spotlight articles on T.K., Carlos, Rubinstein, and Smith, as well as how Tarlos is changing the LGBTQ narrative to see why exactly the show deserved to win the GLAAD Award. New episodes of 9-1-1: Lone Star air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX. Check out the rest of our coverage on the series here.
