The annual show -- which honors accurate and inclusive portrayals of the LGBT community in movies, music, TV and writing -- announced this year's nominees, which include Oscar contending films Call Me By Your Name and Lady Bird, as well as the NBC drama, This Is Us.

Kesha is among the singers nominated for Outstanding Music Artist, along with Miley Cyrus, Kehlani and Sam Smith. Additionally, JAY-Z will earn special recognition at the awards show for his song, "Smile," off of his 4:44 album, which detailed his mother, Gloria Carter’s, coming out story.

New to this year's awards is the Outstanding Family Programming category, which aims to acknowledge LGBT inclusivity in children's television.

The ceremony will take place in Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton on Apr. 12, as well in New York City on May 5 at the New York Hilton Midtown.
