THE BIGGEST NIGHT IN LGBT ENTERTAINMENT
IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER


THE LGBT ACADEMY OF
RECORDING ARTS
(LARA)
WILL HOST  
 7th ANNUAL
OUTMUSIC AWARDS


AT IRVING PLAZA
 MAY 23, 2011 AT 8 P.M.


Celebrating  20 years of music history while honoring and documenting the contributions of openly LGBTQ recording artists and performers in the music industry.


Originally scheduled for December 2010, the OUTMUSIC Awards were postponed due to economic difficulties. However, in response to the postponement, the organization has received overwhelming offers of support from companies and individuals in the community. 


“So many openly gay recording artists and entertainers like Melissa Etheridge, Ricky Martin, Elton John, Ellen DeGeneres, Lance Bass and many others have exemplified courage to come out as an effort to erase the stigma associated with being openly gay in the music & entertainment industry,” says Diedra Meredith, chairwoman and CEO of OUTMUSIC –The LARA.  “We continue alongside these entertainment greats with our mission to bring awareness to these artists’ contributions in the music industry and do away with the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy many have adopted.  We are happy to support these individuals and our many Academy members by honoring and documenting the success each has achieved that would, often time, be overlooked with the 7th Annual OUTMUSIC Awards.” 


The OUTMUSIC Awards ceremony is the biggest night in LGBT entertainment and only organization of its kind in the world.   The highest and most prestigious honor in LGBT music, the 2010 OMAs will be hosted by Comedienne Tammy Peay with special appearance by Jonathan D. Lovitz and cast of Logo TV’s hit show “The Setup Squad”, Sahara Davenport of RuPaul’s Drag Race, cast from Logo TV’s the A-List, .
