The NLGJA Randy Shilts Award for LGBTQ Coverage is an award designed to honor journalists who consistently bring stories of the LGBTQ community to life in mainstream media outlets. The award honors individual journalists and news organizations who go the extra mile to ensure that all Americans are aware of the diversity within the LGBTQ community, as well as the unique struggles lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and queer people face in the United States and around the world.

The recipient of the 2018 Randy Shilts Award is HuffPost Editor-in-Chief Lydia Polgreen.

The event co-chairs are Matthew Berger and Sarah Blazucki.
