Revised voter laws and closed polling places may present challenges for LGBT people and allies trying to vote. If you experience voter intimidation, it's important to know your rights and protect your vote!
An October 29 poll conducted by The Hollywood Reporter (THR) in conjunction with Penn Schoen Berland has found that series with LGBT characters such as Glee, Modern Family and The New Normal are helping drive voters to historically unprecedented levels of support of marriage equality.
Tomorrow, November 6, is Election Day. Unless you have voted early, or sent in your absentee ballot, we need you to vote. Our elected officials determine the future of LGBT equality for years to come, whether it is a local non-discrimination ordinance, a police force that understands the lives of LGBT people, statewide hate crime legislation, or the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
New England values do include a lot of tradition. But that tradition comes from deeper values. Family. Community. Respect. Dignity. Freedom. Faith. Marriage strengthens families. Strong families strengthen communities. Strong communities endure. And nobody knows that better than we do.
As we get closer to Election Day, and as marriage equality hangs in the balance in Minnesota, Maryland, Maine, and Washington, we turn to voices we trust. More and more pro-LGBT voices of faith are leading the charge to pass marriage referenda, or at least stop the march of discrimination.
GLAAD and Equality Matters today called on the media in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Washington and around the country to bring attention to the falsehoods present in anti-LGBT "scare" ads running in the four states with marriage on the ballot on Tuesday
More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
