The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association, a tax-exempt, 501 C-6 nonprofit, is comprised of critics and entertainment journalists who write on television and film for noteworthy media outlets accessible in the U.S.

Formed in 2009, GALECA and its annual Dorian Awards toast the finest in movies, TV shows and performances of all kinds, from mainstream to LGBTQ-centric.

Most members identify as somehow queer, be it lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, though GALECA has straight “ally” journalists in its ranks as well (these members tend to work for LGBTQ-targeted outlets).
