GLAAD – the world’s largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) media advocacy organization – increases media accountability and community engagement that ensures authentic LGBTQ stories are seen, heard, and actualized.
GLAAD’s founders battled discrimination with facts and compassion from the start, as the handful of journalists in 1985 saw family members dying of AIDS, a government unwilling to help, and inflammatory headlines overwhelming newsstands. GLAAD has had a direct impact on inspiring positive LGBTQ cultural representation by nurturing understanding and holding social media platforms accountable for misinformation.
