Our areas of expertise
GLAAD works through entertainment, news, and digital media to share stories from the LGBTQ community that accelerate acceptance.
GLAAD brings LGBTQ characters and plotlines to movie theaters, television sets and even comic books -- working with writers, producers and studios to ensure accurate and diverse representations of LGBTQ people on the big and small screens.
Americans' attitudes and behavior on LGBTQ equality are not just influenced by what they see and hear, but who they know. GLAAD's Southern Stories initiative tells the stories of LGBTQ people and their allies in the South to create a cultural shift towards LGBTQ acceptance and understanding in the region.
GLAAD's Global Voices initiative aims to build LGBTQ acceptance across the globe by sharing stories of LGBTQ people and their families around the world and helping LGBTQ advocates build capacity for change in their own cities and countries.
