After helping ABC’s Dancing With the Stars take home the prize for outstanding reality series last month, GLAAD will honor Chaz Bono with an award of his own.
On Tuesday, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced it would honor Bono — the first transgender contestant on the ABC reality competition series — with its Stephen F. Kolzak Award. The honor is presented annually to an openly gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a difference in promoting equality. Bono is the first transgender recipient of the award.
