Barbara Walters, who has won more than her fair share of awards over the years, received
one Monday from the gay advocacy group GLAAD for her ABC 20/20 report on transgender
children and told the group it was the most important one she had ever received. "You
can forget all the Emmys," she said. "This means more to me." Walters shared honors
with CBS's 60 Minutes, which received a GLAAD award for a feature titled "Don't
Ask, Don't Tell," regarding the military's policy on gay and lesbian service members.
