‘Queerties’ Celebrates the Best In LGBTQ+ Entertainment

  • Post author:

By Denny Patterson

In February, queer TV network Revry partnered with Q. Digital and Lexus for the first-ever television broadcast of Q.Digital’s ‘Queerties,’ an annual award show produced by entertainment site Queerty, celebrating the best in LGBTQ+ culture and media.

“We could not have been more excited to broadcast the Queerties this year and showcase such incredible, diverse queer talent across all our channels,” Revry CEO and Co-Founder Damian Pelliccione exclaimed. 

Hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Miss Congeniality Heidi N Closet and Queerty Editor-in-Chief Dan Tracer, some of the evening’s winners included Elliot Page, Sarah Paulson, Laverne Cox, TikTok sensation Josh Helfgott, the documentary Disclosure, and hit series Schitt’s Creek and Putting On. Angelica Ross was presented with the Groundbreaker Award, while Billy Eichner received the MVP Award.

The show also had an electric performance by Bright Light Bright Light and celebrity appearances by Nicco Annan, James Bland, Isis King, Jai Rodriguez, Shangela, and many more. Fans broke records with more than 1.5 million votes in 23 categories, including Drag Royalty, Closet Door Bustdown, Favorite Podcast, and Bad*** of the Year.
