Moonlight, Transparent and Shadowhunters were among the big winners at the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday.
The event honoured film, television and media for their fair and inclusive representation of the LGBTQ community. Those in attendance wore blue “&” pins to mark the organisation’s Together movement, which aims to address immigration, racial justice and women’s rights issues.
Patricia Arquette received this year’s Vanguard Award for her work as a longtime ally and supporter of the LGBTQ community.
The 48-year-old actress also paid tribute to her late sister, Alexis, known as one of the first transgender activists in Hollywood, who died last September from complications related to HIV/AIDS. She was 47.
