Journalist Ronan Farrow was honored with a Pulitzer Prize yesterday. In an announcement from the Pulitzer Prizes, Farrow was included among the 2018 honorees as one of the winners of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service thanks to his reporting with The New Yorker on the sexual assault allegations brought against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Farrow shared his award with journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of The New York Times for their continued reporting on the evolving #MeToo movement.

The journalist received the Point Courage Award earlier this month for his continued advocacy for the LGBTQ community. During his speech at the Point Foundation gala, Farrow took the opportunity to thank the community for being a “source of strength” for him throughout his reporting on the Weinstein scandal.

Farrow was not the only LGBTQ Pulitzer recipient announced yesterday -- author Andrew Sean Greer was honored with the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel Less, which tells the story of a middle-aged gay author traveling around the world to escape his own sense of existential dread.
