The 2017 GLAAD Media Awards took place on April 1 in Beverly Hills, and some of IndieWire’s favorite films and shows were honored at the ceremony. The event, which will air on Logo on April 6, presented the night’s biggest honor to “Moonlight,” which was chosen as Outstanding Film — Wide Release.
Writer Tarell Alvin McCraney accepted on behalf of the film and gave a passionate speech.
“We win when we give our children, the ones who are going missing in the night, or wondering how much they matter to us, to each other, to the law… give them the courage, the tools and resources to scatter their light across the cinema walls and make the face of heaven so fine,” he said. “We won for ‘Moonlight’ today, but how are we winning tomorrow?”
