MTV Public Affairs Wins Golden Beacon Award for Transgender Awareness Week Campaign

Last week, the Association of Cable Communications (ACC) held their annual Beacon Awards in New York City, honoring excellence in cable communications and public affairs. On a celebratory night of inspiring programming and noteworthy wins, MTV’s Look Different Campaign: Gender Bent won the Public Service Announcement category, while MTV and Logo’s work on Transgender Awareness Week took both the Events/Observances External prize and the Golden Beacon Award.

The Golden Beacon Award win was especially noteworthy, given that it is the ACC’s highest honor, given to an initiative that makes an impact while enhancing cable’s image nationwide.
