By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: It’s just been announced that the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) will honor ABC’s Modern Family at the Respect Awards in Los Angeles on Oct. 8.

The breakout comedy recently received 15 Emmy nominations and is being recognized for portraying positive images and storylines that reflect a diverse America – including the depiction of a family headed by a gay couple.

GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard said in a statement: “GLSEN is honored to be the first national LGBT organization to recognize ABC’s Modern Family. … As a lesbian mother of two, I am grateful to see a show like Modern Family offer an honest and often hilarious look at family experiences frequently overlooked or ignored in Primetime.
