The GLAAD Stephen F. Kolzak Award is a special GLAAD Media Award presented annually by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. It is named in honor of the Los Angeles casting director (1953, Hartford, Conn. - September 19, 1990 Los Angeles, Calif.[1]) who devoted the last part of his life to fighting homophobia and AIDS-phobia within the entertainment industry. The award is given to an openly LGBT member of the entertainment or media community for his or her work toward eliminating homophobia. It has been awarded since 1991, with Kolzak being the posthumous inaugural recipient.
