Outmusic Awards History 

In 2001 the first Outmusic Awards was established to honor excellence in recordings prior to 2000. This event was created to fill the void of the Gay & Lesbian American Music Awards (the GLAMMA's).

 

When the OMAs started, there were only 5 categories, Outstanding New Recording, Outstanding Legacy Recording, Outstanding Live Performer, Outstanding Life Performer and Outstanding Support Award.

 

To date,  the Outmusic Awards is the biggest night in LGBT music & entertainement. Our mission is to educate, raise awareness and ensure that the contributions and achievements of marginalized LGBT artists and creative industry professionals are acknowledged, documented, celebrated and archived into media, music and entertainment history. To support our missions, we film the OUTMUSIC Awards live to tape. LARA relies heavily on the tax deductible donations to support the production of this important event and video archives.   

The OUTmusic Awards has grown from a small gathering of 300 local LGBT music people to an international platform event with 2,000 plus in attendance.
