January 25, 2023 (Saint Paul, MN) – The GLAAD Media Awards announced its 2023 nominees, recognizing and honoring 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. “Subcultured” – produced by Twin Cities PBS (TPT) for PBS Digital Studios – received a nomination for the episode “How is the Gay Rodeo Different?”
“Subcultured” is an original documentary series in which filmmaker Josef Lorenzo explores the origins of different subcultures and what makes those communities unique and important spaces. “How is the Gay Rodeo Different?” showcases the gay rodeo as a safe space for LGBTQ people participating in a western lifestyle, the challenge of bringing young folks into the rodeo, the fierce competition, and aspirations for the future of the community.
The episode was nominated in the Outstanding Online Journalism—Video or Multimedia category. The 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton on Thursday, March 30 and in New York City at the Hilton Midtown on Saturday, May 13.
