GLAAD, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy organization, expressed a mix of disappointment and hopefulness in Pope Francis' lack of explicit welcoming messages for the thousands of LGBT people who followed his trip to the United States.
On the opening day of the World Meeting of Families, Catholic LGBT people and their families introduced themselves to the media and the wider world. GLAAD is working with Equally Blessed, who organized the pilgrimage of the LGBT families.
