Last Thursday, NLGJA presented Jeffrey Toobin, a senior legal analyst for CNN and staff writer at The New Yorker, with the Randy Shilts Award for LGBT Coverage at its annual Dateline:DC event. The NLGJA Randy Shilts Award annually honors a journalist who or organization which consistently brings stories of the LGBT community to life in mainstream media. We’d like to thank him for his work going the extra mile to ensure that all Americans are aware of the unique struggles LGBT people face. Thank you for the heartfelt words at last week’s event:

“Covering the gay rights revolution, in the courts and in the real world, has been one of the great thrills of my professional career,” said Toobin. “So I am especially honored by this recognition from NLGJA.”
