& JULIET, TITANIQUE & More Nominated For Queerties Awards

The Awards are taking place February 28th in Los Angeles.  

Queerty, the LGBTQ+ entertainment news site, is announcing its nominees for The 11th anniversary Queerties awards, taking place February 28th in Los Angeles.

The Queerties is a celebration of entertainment and pop culture moments that defined the past year in the LGBTQ+ community. It is designed to uplift and spotlight LGBTQ+ creators, tastemakers, and storytellers who are not often recognized at other award shows.

& Juliet, Titanique, A Strange Loop, Melissa Etheridge: A Journey Through Life, Take Me Out, Drag: The Musical, The Collaboration, Fat Ham, Merrily We Roll Along, and Best of Enemies are nominated in the Live Theatre category.

Rosie O'Donnell, Jim Parsons, Jinkx Monsoon, Keke Palmer, and David Archuleta are among the nominee for the Badass award.

Reneé Rapp is nominated for Favorite Insta-Follow.

Anything's Possible, Better Nate Than Ever, and The Inspection were nominated for Best Studio Movie.

Michaela Jae Rodriguez was nominated for Best Performance in a TV Show, with Conrad Ricamora, Stephanie Hsu, and Jeremy Pope garnering nominations for Best Performance in a Film.

The Little Mermaid, The Color Purple, and Legally Blonde 3 are all nominated for The Next Big Thing Award.

Nominees for The Queerties were selected by the editorial team at Queerty. Winners will be voted on by Queerty readers from now through February 21. Categories range from the "Badass" award, honoring the top LGBTQ+ newsmakers, to "Drag Royalty," and "Closet Door Bustdown", an award recognizing brave notables who shook up mainstream America with their coming out stories.

This year's event honors Dylan Mulvaney, an actress who documented her gender transition to her ten million followers on TikTok, and musician Rufus Wainwright. Gay music artist VINCINT will perform at the ceremony.
