The social networking site won the Special Recognition Award at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's 23rd annual Media Awards.

Other honorees at Saturday's ceremony in San Francisco included "Grey's Anatomy" for drama series, "Days of Our Lives" for daily drama series, Max J. Rosenthal of The Huffington Post for digital journalism article, Wells Fargo for the Corporate Leader Award and "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes for the Golden Gate Award.

The awards salute fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media. Other winners from among this year's 35 categories were honored at ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles earlier this year.
