Tony Morrison, Senior Director of Communications

Tony Morrison (he/him/his) is an Emmy and GLAAD Award earning producer and journalist with more than a decade of storytelling experience, producing for top network talent, news programs, and shows at CNN, ABC, and Disney, ABC’s parent company. Tony joined GLAAD in September after exiting his post at ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where he oversaw the brand’s social and digital strategy as a senior producer.

At Good Morning America, much of Tony’s work focused on elevating LGBTQ stories. Tony was awarded a GLAAD Media Award at the 32nd GLAAD Awards in New York, for his work in amplifying voices affected by the FDA’s discriminatory policies surrounding blood donations from gay and bisexual men. His coverage brought the FDA’s policies into the national spotlight.

Across ABC News, Tony created space for LGBTQ journalists to thrive in a newsroom on a network level. He spearheaded the creation of the news organization’s first employee resource group for its LGBTQ journalists and allies and was part of the LGBTQ leadership across Disney that helped the company navigate challenges around the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Tony also served as a co-host for Disney’s official podcast, “D23 Inside Disney and produced for various live events and projects across Disney’s brands, including Marvel, Star Wars, Disney Parks Products and Experiences as well as working intimately with Disney PRIDE and Disney Enterprise Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

At GLAAD, Tony will lead and collaborate on GLAAD’s key initiatives, including Spirit Day, Pride month and GLAAD’s 20 Under 20 List. He will also serve as a producer of the annual GLAAD Media Awards. Tony will also expand GLAAD’s work in HIV awareness, education and innovation, a topic he is deeply passionate about. In 2021, Tony wrote a personal essay coming forward with his experience of living in secret with HIV for over eight years, in hopes of raising awareness and reducing the stigma. As a result of sharing his story so publicly, Tony was able to create a platform where people living their truth can connect and share their stories more openly, host’s +Life Media’s web series “Truth Be Told,” with new episodes every Thursday.

Outside of GLAAD, Tony is an avid traveler, professional photographer and is a member of the Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics (GALECA). Connect with Tony on social media @THETonyMorrison
