The GLBT category became more diverse this year with 11 nominations including prominent conservative bloggers, which means that differences in sexual orientation is becoming a very mainstream awareness that is accepted by the vast majority of Canadians. Fifth place finalist Fred, from GayandRight, is one such conservative who shows that sexuality perception has definitely changed from being something shunned by the “right”. Slap Upside the Head and Montreal Simon are back in the finalists, while Gay persons of Color (shouldn’t that be “colour”?) places in the top two for the second year. Moved to Vancouver joins the finalists for the first time this year. Congratulations to all for being considered the best in Canada in GLBT blogging.
