Joy Behar, Cynthia Nixon and the ABC series "Brothers & Sisters" are among this year's recipients of media awards from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Presented Saturday in New York, winners of the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards also include the NBC sitcom "Parks and Recreation," MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" and the Lifetime network film "Prayers for Bobby."

The ABC soap "One Life to Live" and "The Oprah Winfrey Show" were also recognized, along with Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo.

The awards salute fair representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the media. This year's remaining awards will be presented this spring at ceremonies in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
