GLAAD's Entertainment Media Team

GLAAD’s Entertainment Media Team not only works with entertainment-related media platforms to encourage fair, accurate, and inclusive representation of LGBT people, but also to combat problematic content and instances of defamation in these industries.  This process may involve reading scripts, viewing rough cuts, pitching story ideas, consulting with writers and producers, working with talent to better inform them about portraying LGBT characters and arranging entertainment-related events and panels.  GLAAD also promotes LGBT-inclusive projects through GLAAD’s newsroom, social media and the weekly LGBT TV listings, “Must-See LGBT TV,” and through its annual GLAAD Media Awards.
