The LGBTQ Equality movement is often called the new civil rights movement, but how true is that claim? Are the two movements similar, or are they fundamentally different? Do they have the same goals? Why are they often in conflict with one another? A new documentary, "From Selma to Stonewall," explores these questions through the journey of two unlikely friends – Gil Caldwell, an 80-year-old black, straight retired preacher and civil rights leader, and Marilyn Bennet, a 52-year-old white lesbian activist and author.

GLAAD unió a varias organizaciones de comunidades lesbianas, gay, bisexuales y transgénero (LGBT) de los EE.UU., México, Argentina y Europa para enviar una carta abierta dirigida a FIFA pidiendo que tomen concretas acciones en contra de la homofobia en el futbol, algo que FIFA no hizo durante la Copa Mundial. Aunque los acuerdos de FIFA indican que fans que expresan palabras o comportamiento discriminatorio serían expulsados, la organización no hizo nada cuando los fans cantaron la palabra despectiva "puto" durante los juegos entre México vs Cameroon y México vs Brasil. Inclusive, cuando FARE (una organización contra el racismo en el futbol en Europa) pidió una investigación formal del uso de esta palabra anti-gay por los fans, FIFA concluyó que "la palabra no era ofensiva en este contexto." FIFA tomo esta decisión aunque muchos incluyendo Conapred, la agencia anti-discriminación de México ha dicho que la palabra si es ofensiva y dañina.

At the close of the 2014 World Cup, GLAAD was joined by over 25 U.S. and international LGBT and human rights organizations today in a letter to FIFA requesting concrete action to address homophobia in the game and anti-gay chants yelled in the stands.
