Lady Gaga, James Franco, TV’s GLEE and The Human Rights Campaign Among Winners of EDGE Best of 2010 Awards

For Immediate Release Mar 18, 2011

New York, NY - EDGE Media Network, today announced the official unveiling of the prestigious EDGE Best of 2010 Awards. Since 2007, EDGE’s editorial team nominates potential winners in the fields of nightlife, entertainment, technology, fitness, activism and more. The 2010 EDGE Awards represented a record 65 categories across 5 major channels of content.

About the Awards
Nominees are required to be related to the LGBT community; however, "LGBT" in this context does not mean for example that a business need be gay-owned, nor that a motion picture include specifically gay characters. Instead, EDGE’s nominees are organizations, individuals and creative endeavors worthy of celebration in the gay community.

About the Winners
Jonathan Adler, Lady Gaga, Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen Degeneres, James Franco, TV’s "Glee", The Human Rights Campaign and Apple’s iPad are just a few of this year’s winners from a record 65 categories voted on by thousands of EDGE’s loyal readers.

"We’re thrilled to announce our winners for 2010---congratulations!" said EDGE Publisher David Foucher. "Not only it this an exciting program to lead, but it also shines the spotlight on the individuals, businesses, and influencers that believe in---and support---the LGBT community. EDGE believes in connecting individuals and businesses with news, entertainment and valuable local information so these awards are an important part of our mission."
