The nominees for the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards have been announced, and the likes of Adam Lambert, Frank Ocean and ‘Glee‘ are being honored this year.

Lambert and Ocean are facing off in the Outstanding Music Artist category for their work on ‘Trespassing’ and ‘Channel Orange,’ respectively. They will also be up against the Gossip, Scissor Sisters and Rufus Wainwright.

Meanwhile, ‘Glee’ has been recognized in the Outstanding Comedy Series category, vying for the award with the likes of ‘Go On,’ ‘Happy Endings,’ ‘Modern Family’ and ‘The New Normal.’ Fun fact: All three of Ryan Murphy’s shows — ‘Glee,’ ‘American Horror Story’ and ‘The New Normal’ — have earned noms this year.

“Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels,” GLAAD president Herndon Graddick said in a statement. “This year’s nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues and friends. Now more than ever, viewers not only accept gay and transgender characters and plot lines, they expect them — just as they both accept and expect LGBT people to be a valuable part of their everyday lives.”

The GLAAD Media Awards “celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and our allies on TV, in film, and in the news.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, the events raise nearly $3.5 million for the group each year.

Lambert tweeted his excitement for being nominated:
