It’s time again for the GLAAD Media Awards!

The nominations for the awards, which recognize media outlets for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representation of LGBTQ+ people, have been announced by RuPaul’s Drag Race Stars Salina Estitties and Sasha Colby in a comedy version of Drag Story Hour titled “GLAAD’s Drag Story Time.”

“Look at us, beautiful queens sharing amazing stories that celebrate everyone! Scores across the board!” Estitties said in the video.

Colby added, “Artists like us are being threatened with anti-LGBTQ bills, nasty protests, and even violence.”

“You know what’s scary? People with guns, not queens with books!” Estitties quipped before classes began.
