ABC's Family drama The Fosters, produced by Jennifer Lopez was a big winner Saturday night at the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards, which recognizes accurate representation of the LGBT community in the media. 

The Fosters, which has been picked up for a second season, stars Teri Polo and Sherri Saum as two lesbian mothers raising a blended family, who suddenly have their already child-heavy multi-ethnic household turned upside down when a wayward teenage girl moves in.

Laverne Cox, the transgendered co-star of Netflix original series Orange is the New Black, was presented with the Stephen F. Kolzak award. 

The powerful and moving film Call Me Kuchu - which documents the daily lives of David Kato – the first openly gay Ugandan man - and three fellow “kuchus” (LGBT Ugandans), was honored in the documentary category in a tie with OWN's Bridegroom.
