She has done so much throughout her enduring her career for the LGBTQ community, and now Judith Light (Ex-Karen, One Life to Live) is set to receive the GLAAD Media Awards highest honor  – ‘the Excellence in Media Award’.

Judith is set to receive the honor at the upcoming 33rd annual GLAAD Media Award presentation in New York City next month on May 6th.  The award is presented to media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of the LGBTQ community.  For more than four decades Light has done just that, and been a champion for human rights.

This honor will be bestowed upon the multi-Emmy and Tony-winning star by recent Oscar-winner Ariana DeBose, who took home Best Supporting Actress honors for her work in West Side Story a few weeks ago.

The upcoming ceremony will be co-hosted by Peloton instructor. and former DWTS celebrity contestant, Cody Rigby, and RuPaul’s Drag Race star, Peppermint, at the Hilton Midtown New York.

This honor comes a few years later than had been anticipated for Light.  She was previously set to accept the award back in 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the shows from then till now had to be virtual.

Past honorees of the Excellence in Media Award include: Ava DuVernay, Robert De Niro, Kelly Ripa, Patti LaBelle, Debra Messing, Tyra Banks, Julianne Moore, Glenn Close, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Billy Crystal and Diane Sawyer.

Light’s body of work continues to impress. Currently, she can be seen in Starz’s Shining Vale, and HBO’s Max’s Julia, but Judith’s projects from The Ryan White Story to Who’s the Boss to Transparent and everything in between, have been nothing short of mesmerizing.

Love me some Judith light! She was one of the only reasons to watch the Dallas reboot.

Ms. Light certainly deserves this honor for her fearless work in the LGBTQ community. She seems to be a very compassionate person. I’ve never been a big fan of her acting (to me she often seems detached and/or dazed). But she was quite good in THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE and, of course, ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Hard to believe it’s been over 40 years since those halcyon days of soaps!
