Fall 2010

In the wake of the recent youth suicides caused by anti-gay bullying, GLAAD extends our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the young men who took their lives, while urging the nation's media to investigate the anti-gay climate that contributes to putting young people in harm's way.

Skewed Perception: Religious Voices on President Obama and Marriage Equality

In a historic move, on May 9, President Barack Obama announced his support for full marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples. In an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, President Obama stated that his decision to publically support marriage equality is rooted in his faith. In the days immediately following President Barack Obama’s statement in support of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples, news media outlets scrambled to address the president’s use of religious language in explaining how his “evolution” concluded with him choosing to support marriage equality. What we found was stark, but unsurprising.

Black and Latino Faith Leaders Speak Out in Support of Marriage for Gay Couples and President Obama

With President Barack Obama’s recent announcement of support for same-sex marriage, GLAAD today is urging both local and national media to highlight the voices of supportive African-American and Latino clergy who feel that all loving couples should be able to marry, regardless of sexual orientation. These beliefs are not tied to party affiliation, and speak to the evolution of people of faith, including clergy, on this issue. 

Talking About Marriage for Same Sex Couples

The Talking About series was co-authored by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the Movement Advancement Project (MAP), in partnership with a board of contributing editors from the Human Rights Campaign, Lake Research Partners, PFLAG's Straight for Equality project, Arizona Together, researcher Margaret Conway, and Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN, on the Don't Ask, Don't Tell section).

Missing Voices: A study of religious voices in mainstream media reports about LGBT equality

A three-year study of mainstream news coverage about the intersection of religion and issues affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community1 showed that media outlets overwhelmingly quoted or interviewed sources from Evangelical Christian organizations to speak about LGBT lives, and the messages from those sources were significantly more negative than positive, resulting in a 'religion versus gay' framing.

Guía para una Cobertura Objetiva de Personas y Temas Transgénero

GLAAD le insta a todos los medios de comunicación a prestar mucha atención al lenguaje que se emplea a la hora de cubrir cualquier noticia (sobre todo las historias de crímenes) que tenga que ver con la comunidad lésbica, gay, bisexual y transgénero (LGBT).
