The Oscar winner “Moonlight” has won again, taking best film at the 28th annual GLAAD Media Awards.

Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age portrait was honoured by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation at the awards held Saturday at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

The group nominated only two films for the award, which it said reflected the dearth of LGBTQ story lines in Hollywood. The other nominee was “Star Trek Beyond.”

On the TV side, Jill Soloway’s “Transparent” won for outstanding comedy series.

The best drama series went to the Freeform fantasy “Shadowhunters.”

Patricia Arquette was honoured with the Vanguard Award and tearfully dedicated the award to her late transgender sister, Alexis Arquette.

The awards honour the “fair, accurate and inclusive representations” of the LGBTQ community.
