Nominations 3.Jan.19 • Winners 8.Jan.19 • Winners' Toast 12.Jan.19 in Los Angeles

Galeca's mission is to honour content "from mainstream to gaystream". Previous Film of the Year winners include Call Me By Your Name, Moonlight, Carol, Boyhood, 12 Years a Slave, Argo, Weekend, I Am Love and A Single Man. Galeca: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics is comprised of more 100 professional entertainment journalists globally, with an aim to generate camaraderie in an unsettling media environment, preserve and champion the art of constructive criticism, and remind the world the LGBTQ community has a significant history of enhancing culture at large.
Notes by Rich: The Dorian Awards categories cover both film and television, with categories that look at quality, camp-value and position in the LGBTQ community. So of course this is not your normal set of nominees! There's an intriguing mix of LGBTQ titles throughout all of the categories, plus a general willingness to look outside the popular films ("Unsung" nominees are particularly worth seeking out). And yes, it's fun to vote for these.
