College Media Reference Guide

Content

This is a debugging block

The GLAAD College Media Reference Guide is a resource for college journalists covering stories about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.  The Guide, a 24” x 36” poster, provides college journalists with a resource to tell the stories of their gay and transgender classmates in the most fair, accurate and inclusive way.  The Guide is particularly helpful because it includes terminology used more often in young adult communities and because it distills the content of GLAAD’s 7th Edition of the Media Reference Guide into an easy to reference resource ideal for campus newsrooms.

The College Media Reference Guide is split into two sections to cover reporting of sexual orientation and gender identity.  Both sections provide a glossary of terminology frequently used to describe gay and transgender communities.  The Guide also addresses problematic language that should be avoided in responsible journalism and identifies defamatory language that dehumanizes and marginalizes the subject of a story when it is used.

The Guide is a product of GLAAD’s Young Adult Media program, which was launched in 2007.  Working on campuses across the country to promote equality and visibility, GLAAD serves as a resource to college journalists, and trains students and campus leaders
to be more effective in changing hearts and minds through media advocacy and
fighting defamation.
