Wonder what we’re up to at GLAAD?
Be sure to check out GLAAD Blog each week for updates about our latest work to build support for LGBT equality through news, entertainment and online media.
- On Friday, January 13, GLAAD was on the ground in Chicago, IL, working with leaders from six leading advocacy organizations on how to create effective messages and share them with the media. Participating in the daylong training were leaders from Equality Illinois, the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance, Affinity Community Services, Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN), Amigas Latinas and Lambda Legal.
- When news broke that the Mormon Church read a letter to its Minnesotan congregants urging them to oppose marriage equality, GLAAD’s Religion, Faith & Values team worked with pro-LGBT Mormons in Minnesota and around the country to lift up a message of support of all families.
- GLAAD presented the 3rd Annual cineGLAAD series at the Sundance Film Festival this week, hosting three educational panels about LGBT images on film. The panels – which addressed topics including LGBT equality in faith communities and online fundraising – brought together some of the industry’s leading voices and highlighted this year’s LGBT-inclusive films.
- GLAAD announced the nominees of the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards last week. See a full list of nominees here.
