Degrassi Nominated for a GLAAD Award!!

Big congratulations goes out to the cast & crew of Degrassi this morning, as it was just announced that the show has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award!!

Degrassi is nominated in the Outstanding Dramatic Series category. The show is up against Brothers & Sisters, Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, and True Blood.

You might remember that Degrassi has been nominated in this category before. In 2004, Degrassi was nominated for Marco’s coming out storyline. 4 years later, in 2008, they received a nomination for the Paige/Alex storyline. This year, Degrassi is receiving recognition for the groundbreaking Adam storyline, as well as the ongoing Riley/Zane saga.

The GLAAD Media Awards are an annual awards show organized by GLAAD to promote fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBT community in the media to build support for equality. Click here for the full list of nominations!

UPDATE: Stefan did a little interview talking about the nomination. Here’s some of what he had to say -
For the people in this building, it’s almost like getting nominated for an Emmy or an Oscar … It’s big news around here. We do pride ourselves on trying to tell really truthful stories.

I think there’s no doubt that more and more shows are introducing gay characters and I don’t think for any other reason except that there’s a large part of the audience that wants to relate to something
