More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Eye on the Media - Post-Election LGBT & Prop 8 Coverage
On Friday, GLAAD released a document entitled "Eye on the Media" which looks at post-election media coverage of LGBT issues and California's proposition 8. From the document:
Los Angeles, CA – The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today provided recommendations to help media outlets provide fair, accurate and inclusive coverage of the aftermath of Prop 8 in California and the rallies being organized at the grassroots level throughout the United States.
Since the Nov. 4 vote on anti-gay ballot measures in California, Arizona, Florida and Arkansas, GLAAD has been working with print and broadcast journalists in national, regional and local markets on their coverage of these ballot measures and local community responses. Following our conversations with journalists and community leaders, these recommendations are designed to address continuing misinformation about these issues and promote media coverage that is fair, accurate and inclusive.
