Transgender people remain largely invisible in the media. GLAAD advocates for positive stories about transgender Americans in the news and on television programs like TeenNick’s Degrassi. GLAAD also helps transgender people and allies across the country share their stories in their local communities. With anti-transgender jokes and rhetoric permeating media on a regular basis, GLAAD speaks out against transphobia in ways that educates Americans about who transgender people are.
