Queer superheroes like Batwoman are earning DC Entertainment, one of the largest comic book and superhero entities, a prestigious award.
GLSEN, the national organization championing LGBTI students and issues in K-12, is giving its Visionary Award to DC. The award will be presented at the GLSEN Respect Awards on 20 October at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The award ceremony began in 2004 and honors individuals and corporations who have made a significant impact on youth in the community. The ceremony takes place in both Los Angeles and New York every year.
Previously, the Visionary Award has gone to those like Jess Cagle and Jon Stryker.
