Randy Shilts Award for LGBT Coverage

NLGJA is excited to announce that New York Times columnist Frank Bruni will receive the 2016 Randy Shilts Award for LGBT Coverage at the annual Dateline:DC event on November 17.

“Randy Shilts paved the way for so many of us, covering gay issues when news organizations often resisted that,” said Bruni. “His work certainly inspired me, so I’m hugely flattered–and genuinely grateful–to receive this honor.”

Bruni joined The New York Times in 1995 after writing for The Detroit Free Press. While in Detroit he worked as a war correspondent, movie critic and religion writer. He has served as the White House Correspondent and the chief restaurant critic.  Bruni became an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times in 2011, and covers topics including politics, social issues, education, culture and gay rights. In addition to his work as an Op-Ed columnist, Bruni is the author of three books.
