Amazon Studios' highly anticipated series 'Transparent' is out today on Amazon Instant Video. The entire series, comprised of 10 episode, has been released for binge watching by the online retailer, with the pilot available free to anyone who'd like to see it.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a group dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry while seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society, has joined GLAAD and Scouts for Equality in urging Amazon to end its support of the Boy Scouts of America through the company's charitable giving program, AmazonSmile.
Today, GLAAD was on the ground in Seattle with LGBT youth, adults, and local advocates as they delivered more than 125,000 petition signatures to online retail giant Amazon at the company's headquarters in Seattle.
Melinda Katz, the President of the Queens Borough in New York City, has rescinded an invitation to the Boy Scouts of America to offer a presentation to her cabinet, citing the discriminatory policy of banning gay Scout leaders.
Despite the company's non-discrimination policy, Amazon is standing by its support of the anti-gay Boy Scouts of America. GLAAD will join gay Eagle Scout Pascal Tessier and ousted gay Scoutmaster Geoff McGrath in delivering more than 120k petitions calling on Amazon to pause its support.
