At a Saturday (May 5) night ceremony in Midtown Manhattan hosted by Ross Mathews, Billboard was honored with an award for Outstanding Magazine Overall Coverage at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards.
After the award was announced during a brief video montage, Lea Michele congratulated Billboard at the top of the jubilant awards show.
"All around us audiences are cramming into Broadway theaters, about to experience music, emotion, love, laughter and the transformative power of community," Michele said. "But guess what – you’ve got the best ticket in town. This the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards everybody, and we want to start by congratulating Billboard for taking home their first-ever GLAAD Media Award for Best Magazine. Thanks for all you do to support LGBTQ artists and allies."
