TOM MCCORMACK & MICHAEL MITCHELL
Creators of the Gay & Lesbian Music Awards (GLAMA)
Thomas McCormack and Michael Michell are the creators of the Gay & Lesbian American Music Awards (the GLAMAs) which spanned five years and provided the foundation for the recognition of the excellence of GLBT artists. The event grew from seven competitive awards for it's first ceremony, to 27 at it's last.
The first awards ceremony covered an eligibility period of June 1, 1995 through May 31, 1996, and the ceremony was held on October 6, 1996. The next three events basically covered the calendar year releases for 1997, 1998 and 1999, with the ceremonies held on March 9, 1998, April 12, 1999, and April 22, 2000.
The vision of Tom and Michael was to create a commercially viable platfrom for the Gay and Lesbian music and entertainment community. What they started in 1995 sparked the evolution of the LGBT music & entertainment industry today. Outmusic awarded Tom McCormack and Michael Mitchell the Outmusic Visionary Award to honor them for their leadership and innovative contibutions.
