Guía para los Medios: Terminología Gay, Lesbiana, Bisexual y Transgénero

La cobertura justa, objetiva y veraz de los medios de comunicación ha jugado una parte importante en la formación de la opinión pública sobre la comunidad gay y transgénero. Las mejores representaciones han sido multi-dimensionales, reflejando nuestra diversidad y captando una visibilidad creciente de nuestras familias y parejas.

Estamos viviendo en una era donde el discurso sobre la vida de las personas gays o transgéneros cruza con la cobertura sobre la familia, la fe, la guerra, la política, los deportes, el entretenimiento y varios otros temas.

Sin embargo, dentro de este esquema las personas gays y transgenerós aún son representadas en los medios en español como personajes estereotípicos y como punto de burla. Muchos reporteros, editores y productores continúan enfrentando retos al cubrir los temas de nuestra comunidad.

Nosotros en GLAAD estamos comprometidos a proveer los recursos necesarios a los medios para que la cobertura sobre nuestra comunidad sea adecuada. GLAAD cree firmemente que la mejor cobertura provee información veraz con un contexto apropiado y le permite al lector, televidente o radioescucha formar su propia conclusión.

Les pedimos que le permitan esa oportunidad a su público en relación a la cobertura de la comunidad gay y transgénero, y le recordamos que La Alianza Gay y Lésbica Contra la Difamación está aquí siempre para servir como recurso.
