The 2014 AfterEllen Visibility Award Winners


Throughout the last month, we asked you to vote for your favorites in television, film, music, books, sports and people in our 10th annual AfterEllen Visibility Awards. Now the votes are in, and some of last year’s winners maintained victories while others struggled to hang on but ended up slipping due to new shows, like one of the year’s big winners, Faking It. Meanwhile Ellen Page‘s coming out made her an even bigger winner and, with the end near for Glee and Lost Girl, there are tributes to their fandoms from readers and editors alike.

As you’ll see, we continued to give our own editors’ picks this year, honoring those we think deserve the accolades alongside your collective choices. Truly, all the nominees are winners at the Visibility Awards, because they are all worthy in their individual categories. Their contributions to positive lesbian, bisexual and queer female representation in pop culture and media are limitless and help our community to be seen, heard and understood. It was a great year, and we want to celebrate their achievements.

So without further adieu, here’s who ended up taking home the Bests and the Favorites of 2014.
