Why Words and Images Matter: The GLAAD Media Awards at Work

While riding the subway the other day, I was seated next to a young girl, maybe 8 or 9 years old, and her father. “Twenty-eighth Street is next. And then 23rd. And then 18th,” she told me. Apparently, even she could tell I wasn’t a New Yorker.

Then, as the train came to a stop at the station (sure enough, 28th Street), her attention was drawn to a gay couple who boarded holding hands. She quieted.

“Do those men love each other?” she asked her father.

This could be interesting.

Documentary on Gay Bar Incident to Premier Thursday in Fort Worth

Robert L. Camina wasn’t at the Rainbow Lounge in the early morning hours of June 28, 2009, when police and state agents converged on the Fort Worth gay bar but, like many others, read about it hours later on Facebook.

“I had to read the posts a number of times just to make sure I really understood what was going on. It just seemed so absurd. ... These stories of just shock and trauma were being posted online,” said Camina, a Dallas filmmaker.
