(Hypebot) – GLAAD has named the 2022 nominees in both Breakthrough and established music artist categories.

The GLAAD Media Awards honor the fair and inclusive representation of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect their lives.

Although bisexuals – who make up the majority of the LGBTQ community according to GLAAD – are underrepresented in the media, this year’s music nominees defy the trend.

Bisexual artists Halsey and St. Vincent and pansexual artist Demi Lovato are nominated for Outstanding Music Artist. In the Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist category, bisexual artists Arlo Parks, Japanese Breakfast, and Lauren Jauregui are all nominated.
