GLAAD Media Awards TV Winners: Pose, Schitt's Creek, Colbert & More

The 2020 GLAAD Media Awards held its first virtual ceremony on Thursday night (airing on Logo on August 3), and let's just say that FX's Pose, Pop's Schitt's Creek, CBS' The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and many more across the television/cable/streaming landscape had a pretty good night (check out the list of winners below). Hosted outside and poolside by comedians Fortune Feimster and Gina Yashere, the 31st edition of the ceremony created to honor fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues in the media featured performances by Tony Award-winner Ben Platt (The Politician), as well as singer and activist Shea Diamond.
