ABOUT THE DORIAN AWARDS

The Dorian Awards for film and TV, chosen by the GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, go to the best in all of film and TV. In honoring both mainstream and LGBTQ-centric content, the Society helps remind bullies, bigots, and at-risk youth that the world looks to the Q eye for tips on great entertainment. The Dorians, founded in 2009, present their film awards in early spring, and their TV awards in late autumn. GALECA teamed with Karel.Media in 2020 to bring the shows to television and streaming platforms. Enjoy our recent Dorians TV Toast 2020 special on Revry.TV
