A program on Sirius XM’s OutQ, a channel dedicated to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people, will be honored with “Special Recognition” by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination at the group’s GLAAD Media Awards.
“The Laramie Project, 10 Years Later — The Lasting Legacy of Matthew Shepard” was a documentary that examined a play, The Laramie Project, and its legacy. Shepard was a gay college student who was tortured and killed in 1998.
Produced by an OutQ program co-host Romaine Patterson, the documentary interviewed playwright Moises Kaufman and members of the cast.
Scott Greenstein, Sirius XM Radio president and chief content officer, said programmers were honored to be recognized by GLAAD.
The GLAAD Media Awards will be given at three ceremonies: March 28 in New York; April 18 in Los Angeles and May 9 in San Francisco.
