Dance queen Lady GaGa and openly gay singer Adam Lambert will be battling against each other at the 21st Annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards. The two are nominated for Outstanding Music Artist prize.

Lady GaGa makes it to the list for her 2009 studio album "The Fame Monster", while Adam gets the nod for his debut effort "For Your Entertainment". Joining them in the category are Brandi Carlile, The Gossip and Otep.

2010 GLAAD Media Awards will be taking place at New York's Marriott Marquis on March 13, Los Angeles' Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on April 17 and San Fransisco's The Westin St. Francis on June 5. In addition to honoring musicians, this annual event will also hand out awards to people working in movie, television and journalism.

Special honoree at the show is Cynthia Nixon who will be given the Vito Russo Award at the New York ceremony. The Vito Russo Award is named after a founding member of GLAAD and is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for the community.

"Cynthia Nixon has been a vocal and visible advocate who has transformed cultural attitudes about our community," said GLAAD President Jarrett. "She is a perfect example of how sharing your personal story and speaking out for marriage equality can inspire change among fair-minded Americans. It is our privilege to honor her."

Adam's popularity in mainstream America is building, and taking hold across the globe as well. He is first pronounced GAY signed to a major record right from the start of his career. He wants his sexual preference to be a non-issue while he focuses on his career. He knows he cannot always avoid the questions, and the hype, but he has never denied who he is. He might not be yelling from mountain tops for Gay rights, but what he is achieving in American POP culture, and the gay community right now is huge.

OTEP! Not only does Otep stand up and speak out for the GLBT community, but she inspires others to do the same. To me, that is the mark of a true leader.

I was happy with ANY of the nominees to win the award, but after seeing Otep being rude to fellow nominees on twitter, I hope anyone BUT Otep wins. Not cool to dis on other artists your up against for an award.

Not happy seeing the negativity about Adam Lambert that @OtepOfficial is spreading and retweeting on twitter. I thought the band and Shamaya were really cool before what I saw on twitter today. Why does the gay community always go against themselves? Adam supports his fellow musicians and artists, especially from the gay community.

Otep hands down.

PLEASE! What about Otep?! I'm sorry, but I fail to see what Adam Lambert and Lady GaGa have done. Playing with your sexual orientation to make people speculate so you can sell more issues of a magazine is ALL but's disgusting. Otep is passionate about what she believes for, and that's intoxicating to us, her fans, and we are glad for it. She transmits that passion for equality and makes people want to fight for all those who are undermined. I fight for equality not only because I believe in it, but I know that it is so important for people I admire so much like her. If there is anyone who needs to get recognition for everyday fight, that is OTEP!

Lady Gaga isn't gay why is she nominated? I don't believe she is bi. She has a boyfriend right now too. Whatever.

I am sure you have never seen Adam Lambert performing. Adam is an absolutely talented and sensational phenomenon. Except for his talent, Adam is a beautiful personality, a true professional who aims for perfection in everything he does. I know there homophobic heaters who don’t want to see and/or understand anything related to a guy person, but… how blind and negative can they be? Fortunately high level professionals and media know what that Adam Lambert is an undeniable and rare talent. This is why he was rewarded so far and will be in the future.

To Maria, she's bi, she could have boyfriends. Bisexual means you're attracted to both males and females. Plus, she's nominated for standing up to gay rights in Washington, D.C. Christina Aguilera won a GLAAD award and she isn't gay or bi. If you don't know why, it was because she showed her support for gay love in her video 'Beautiful.' Anyways, I like that Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert are nominated.

GLAAD? Adam Lambert? These guys suck big time! Didn't they just left him unsupported in that ABC-AMA scandal? Now they need Lambert's ratings?
