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.

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.
