A Note from GLAAD President Jarrett T. Barrios
It’s already the beginning of spring and GLAAD has been hard at work promoting the first wave of marriages in D.C. Spring means so much to so many and for my family it means that Javier, our 18 year-old son, is getting ready for his high school prom. But in some places around the country, that rite of passage has been extinguished. In Georgia and Mississippi, two brave high school teenagers named Constance McMillen & Derrick Martin were treated differently than their classmates because of their desire to express who they are.

Be the Change You Want to See

GLAAD and DC Leadership Council Chair Jessica Katz Further Understanding of LGBT Couples
The D.C. Leadership Council is working to build a coalition of supporters who, especially with the recent nuptials by gay and lesbian couples in the District, share the belief that the court of public opinion is just as important as a court of law.

Make Your Gift Go Further

Double to Triple Your Gift to GLAAD With Matching Gifts
Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company offers a matching gifts program your gift to GLAAD could be doubled or even tripled.
