GLAAD's list of resources providing information and ways to participate in World AIDS Day.

World AIDS Day has been observed on December 1 every year since 1988, with the purpose of honoring and remembering the millions who have been lost to the epidemic and to bring attention to HIV/AIDS and those currently living with it.

When it was created, World AIDS Day became the first-ever health day to be commemorated worldwide, providing an important opportunity for the global community to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS. This year’s theme is “Getting to Zero: Zero New HIV Infections. Zero Discrimination. Zero AIDS-Related Deaths.”

There are numerous ways to get involved with World AIDS Day this year, by learning the facts and putting the knowledge into action. Another way to show support for those living with HIV/AIDS is by wearing the signature red ribbon on December 1. You can find out more about World Aids Day at www.worldaidsday.org.

GLAAD Media Reference Guide - 8th Edition

Over the past two decades, Americans have experienced a significant evolution in their understanding and cultural acceptance of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender lives.

Consequently, media coverage of gay and lesbian issues (and increasingly, bisexual and transgender issues) has moved beyond simplistic political dichotomies and toward more fully realized representations not only of the diversity of our community, but also of our lives, our families, and our fundamental inclusion in the fabric of American society.
