In the GLAAD announcement, Discovery was amongst the shows praised for including “powerful and impactful stories about LGBTQ people of color” and for centering “transgender people and issues in new and diverse ways.” This nomination makes Discovery three for three with GLAAD Awards nominations for each season, but no wins so far. Season three of Discovery included the introduction of a trans character and a non-binary character, Gray and Adira.
Discovery actors Wilson Cruz (Dr. Culber) and Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets) took to Twitter to show their pride in the GLAAD nomination.
