Gays With Kids Is a 2018 GLAAD Media Award Nominee!

Gays With Kids is honored to be included among the nominees for best blog, which will be announced as part of a ceremony in Los Angeles on April 12th.

On January 29, GLAAD announced its 29th Media Award nominees, and we're excited to share that we were nominated for "Outstanding Blog." It's our first time to receive a nomination from GLAAD and we're honored to be recognized alongside other fantastic websites such as Autostraddle, My Fabulous Disease, Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents and Transgriot.

The GLAAD Media Awards celebrate and recognize film, television, music, books and journalism for their "fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives."

Our category will be announced as part of the ceremonies taking place in Los Angeles on April 12th. Though it's cliché to say, we can't help it: win or lose, it truly is an honor just to be nominated! We appreciate GLAAD's recognition to increase the availability and quality of resources for gay, bi and trans dads, and to tell as many of our family creation stories as possible. We're a small but passionate and dedicated team, and we wouldn't be here without our bloggers, contributing writers, and you, our readers. Thank you for your ongoing support and readership! This honor is as yours as it is ours.

Keep your fingers crossed for us on April 12th!
