The likes of Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John have been nominated for this year's GLAAD Media Awards.

The ceremony recognises "media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives".

It is due to take place this year on April 12 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles and in New York City on May 3 at the Waldorf Astoria.

Its Outstanding Music Artist section - which honours acts with recently released albums - sees Gaga and Sir Elton John lead the way with their respective 'ARTPOP' and 'The Diving Board' efforts.

Goldfrapp's 'Tales Of Us' and Tegan and Sara's 'Heartthrob' are also nominated, as well as Vampire Weekend's 'Modern Vampires of the City'.
