2012 GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco – winners

The last of three Media Awards evenings held by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation took place last night in San Francisco. The 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards recognized media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives.

The main winner last night was Shonda Rhimes, who was presented the Golden Gate Award by Kerry Washington, Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes. She also accepted the Outstanding Drama Series prize for her show Grey's Anatomy.

Corporate awards were given to Wells Fargo and Facebook – surely good news for the latter as their stock price has been tumbling ever since opening on the stock market. Founder Mark Zuckerberg was not on hand to accept the award, which was presented to representatives Andrew Noyes and Sara Sperling.
