This election year, GLAAD is offering a series of resources about LGBT-related policy and legal issues for both voters and the media professionals who inform them.
GLAAD commemorates International Human Rights Day with a video featuring international LGBT leaders speaking about how the media can accelerate or hinder acceptance for LGBT people from around the world.
The world has its first country that offers marriage equality for same-sex couples as a result of a vote of the people. Ireland last May made international headlines by voting "yes" for marriage equality.
Today, bisexual organizations across the country are joining millions of people to go purple for Spirit Day to take a stand against bullying and show support for LGBT youth.
"To not feel supported sets them up for a dangerous situation," Lynette added, noting the loss of numerous bi and trans youth to suicide has left a deep sadness throughout the community as a whole.
At GLAAD's first ever international board meeting in London last week, GLAAD heard from Bisi Alimi, the founder of the Bisi Alim Foundation, an LGBT advocacy organization that works to drive a more inclusive legislation and cultural environment for LGBT Nigerians through research, training, campaigning, and advocacy.
On the morning that GLAAD announced the expansion of its commitment to global LGBT work, the organization sat down with 22 UK-based LGBT advocacy organizations and leaders to hear the work that is being done, and spark ideas for possible collaboration.
