Sports prominent in gay journalism awards

From Outsports:

It’s been quite a year for sports, and Outsports has certainly benefited. After Jim’s piece on Hudson Taylor was nominated for a GLAAD Award, now my piece on Kye Allums has won third place for the NLGJA Award for online journalism. The Allums piece was a project of passion for me, and it ignited a national conversation about transgender athletes. It took over six months of work, and I’m really proud to have it acknowledged. Thank you, NLGJA!

Our good friend LZ Granderson was named the group’s journalist of the year. LZ has made a name for himself taking controversial positions on issues and arguing them with passion and intelligence. He’s also been fantastic on the issues of gays in sports. Congratulations, LZ!

We add our congratulations to Cyd, to Outsports, and to LZ Granderson!
