Ryan Murphy (r) praised Glee stars Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch
US musical TV series Glee has been named best comedy series at the Glaad media awards in the US for its positive portrayal of gay characters.
Creator Ryan Murphy revealed that Kurt, played by actor Chris Colfer, would have a boyfriend in the next series and the pair would be school prom kings.
He added that the gay character "would never be a victim" in the hit show.
Director Tom Ford was unable to pick up best film for A Single Man due to flight restrictions in the UK.
While the film-maker was stranded in London, partner Richard Buckley picked up the award in Los Angeles on his behalf.
Another winner at the ceremony was actress Drew Barrymore, who was presented with an award recognising individual efforts to increase understanding of the gay community.
In her acceptance speech, she paid tribute to a long list of inspirational gay people in her life, including her doctor, stylist and one of her dogs.
Openly gay American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert performed at the event and made a plea for greater diversity in the gay community.
