FILM: Nominations 21.Feb.22 • Winners 17.Mar.22
TV: Nominations 23.Jun.22 • Winners Aug.22

The Dorian Awards aim to honour film and television "from mainstream to gaystream". 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: Starting in 2020, the Dorians have separate film and television awards, with categories that look at quality, camp-value and position in the LGBTQ community. So of course these are never your normal sets of nominees! There's an intriguing mix of LGBTQ titles throughout all of the categories, plus a general willingness to look outside the popular movies and series ("Unsung" nominees are particularly worth seeking out). Yes, it's fun to vote for these!

  • Critics unite to promote equality in media

    18.Jun.19, Los Angeles: Six critics organisations that champion underrepresented yet influential voices in entertainment journalism have joined forces to form Critics Groups for Equality in Media, a professional coalition seeking to improve awareness of the value of women, people of colour and LGBTQ journalists who cover the worlds of film and television. CGEM seeks to improve engagement with studios, networks, PR firms and other entertainment organisations, push for better pay and representation among media outlets on behalf of the groups' members, and nurture next-generation voices in entertainment journalism.

    The allied groups participating in CGEM are the African American Film Critics Association, the Features Forum of the Asian American Journalists Association, Galeca: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, the Latino Entertainment Journalists Association, the Online Association of Female Film Critics and Time's Up Entertainment, which recently launched Critical, an opt-in press database designed to support greater diversity among critics and entertainment reporters. The groups will exchange their experiences and ideas and work together to advance their goals. Among the possible initiatives, the coalition is discussing a watchdog component that would include giving studios, networks and PR houses an annual grade based on the quality of their engagement with each group. CGEM is also considering presenting special honours to public relations professionals and media executives who have advanced equality in media and working with journalists. Other entities sharing the coalition's mission will be invited to join in the future.
