The nominees for the 33rd annual GLAAD Media Awards have been announced, with the list including an impressive crop of new television shows. The awards ceremony honors projects in the media that promote queer inclusiveness and improve the overall quality of LGBTQ representation. This year’s ceremony will be split between two dates, Los Angeles on April 2nd and New York on May 6.

Last year’s winners included Star Trek: Discovery for Outstanding Drama, Schitt’s Creek for Outstanding Comedy, Michaela Coel‘s I May Destroy You for Outstanding Limited Series, and Uncle Frank for Outstanding Television Movie. This year’s nominees represent the brightest and the best when it comes to queer representation in today’s television landscape, with the docket including a monumental mix of both new shows, like Yellowjackets and The Sex Lives of College Girls, and veteran series, such as Love, Victor and The L Word: Generation Q.
