Entertainment Weekly often gets to walk the red carpet alongside award nominees, but this time, we get to walk among the nominees.
On Thursday, EW and PEOPLE will broadcast live from the red carpet at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, where EW is up for the Outstanding Magazine Coverage award. (We’re very honored.) Orange Is the New Black‘s Lea DeLaria will co-host the live stream alongside EW’s own Patrick Gomez. The pre-show will begin at around 8:45 p.m. ET/5:45 p.m. PT.
The awards recognize media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community and the issues that affect their lives. During this year’s ceremony, Beyoncé and Jay-Z will receive the Vanguard Award for their efforts as LGBTQ allies, and Will & Grace‘s Sean Hayes will be honored with the Stephen F. Kolzak award, which is given each year to an LGBTQ entertainer who has helped promote LGBTQ acceptance through their work. Other guests will include Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Waithe, Olivia Munn, Allison Janney, Shangela, The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil, and the cast of Queer Eye. Nominees include Love, Simon, The Favourite, Crazy Rich Asians, FX’s Pose, and Netflix’s dearly departed One Day at a Time.
Hosted by Ross Mathews of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the 30th GLAAD Media Awards will take place at the Beverly Hilton. You can catch the live stream here at EW.com or over on PeopleTV, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
