ABC Takes a Bow for Gay-Affirming Television Programming


NY Times, Oprah also honored for glamorizing homosexuality.

For the second straight year, ABC received the most nominations for gay-affirming TV programming. The network landed nine nominations from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), while CBS garnered three nods, NBC two and Fox two, The Associated Press reported.

ABC's nominated shows include Brothers & Sisters, Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives.

Oprah Winfrey and Tyra Banks dominated the Outstanding Talk Show Episode category. For Newspaper Overall Coverage, nominees were: The Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Seattle Times and the San Francisco Chronicle.

"GLAAD's annual recognition of programs promoting homosexuality and transgenderism reflect the magnitude of the sea change in American attitudes about these issues," said Caleb H. Price, research analyst for Focus on the Family. "It's astonishing to think that GLAAD is able to put up nearly 200 nominees in 40 categories — even though homosexuals and transgenders comprise between 2 and 3 percent of the population.

"Yet even this won't be enough for the gay-activist community and its stated agenda to glamorize and normalize homosexuality."
