Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Up For Glaad Award

Lady Gaga has been nominated for a Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Award.

The 25-year-old singer will do battle with 'The Voice' contestant Beverly McClellan, Girl in a Coma, Hunx and His Punx, and MEN for the Outstanding Music Artist accolade at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which aims to recognise and honour media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.

The cast of 'Glee' - which features Chris Colfer and Jayne Lynch - have been given a nod for Outstanding Comedy Series, while the Clint Eastwood-directed movie 'J.Edgar' has been recognised in the Outstanding Film - Wide Release category.

Chaz Bono - who was born a woman named Chastity and began gender reassignment surgery three years ago - has a double nomination with his 'Becoming Chaz' show up for Outstanding Documentary and his appearance on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' earning an Outstanding Talk Show Episode nod.

Mike Thompson, GLAAD's acting president, said in a statement: "As media continue to tell new stories about LGBT people and families, a majority of Americans now support full equality of LGBT Americans.

"This year's nominees enlighten and entertain, while spotlighting the diversity of our community. Audiences expect to see their own worlds reflected in media, and today more than ever, those include the lives of LGBT people. Viewers know that LGBT characters and stories are simply natural extensions of, and glimpses into, their own experiences from across America."

The awards will be presented at three ceremonies in New York on March 24, Los Angeles on April 21 and San Francisco on June 2.
