  • GLAAD’s Director of Spanish-Language Media appeared on CNN en Español this week to discuss several new polls that reflect growing support for marriage equality, including among Latino Catholics. A recent report from the Public Religion Research Institute showed that nearly 6 in 10 (57%) of Latino Catholics in California said they would vote to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.
  • GLAAD worked with El Diario La Prensa, New York’s number one Spanish-language newspaper on an article on International Day Against Homophobia in which GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios was quoted. Our Spanish-Language Media team also worked with the paper’s Opinion editor to help inform her on the effects of anti-gay bias and on the importance of sharing our stories with community members.
  • After Chicago Bulls player Joakim Noah shouted an anti-gay slur during a recent game, GLAAD once again called on the NBA to take action. Noah was later fined $50,000. In April, GLAAD announced a new partnership with the NBA to address homophobia in sports after Lakers star Kobe Bryant shouted an anti-gay slur at a referee.
