Pride Month might looked different this year due to the current situation that's going on world wide, but just because many parades and related celebrations around the world have beencanceled, it doesn’t mean you have to sit this one out.We haven't! This month, we made a donation to GLAAD !
From 1987 to present, GLAAD has been atthe forefront of cultural change, accelerating acceptance for the LGBTQ community.In response to the New York Post's grossly defamatory and sensationalized HIV and AIDS coverage, a small group of journalists and writers form GLAAD. The first reported meeting is November 14, 1985 and later that year, almost 1,000 people protest outside of the New York Post.
GLAAD’s programs and services provide the tools and resources necessary for individuals and local groups to effectively talk about LGBT issues in the media and for the media to report on LGBT topics. GLAAD staff members pitch stories across the country on issues that affect LGBT people to change hearts and minds, encourage positive opinions and showcase the common ground we all share. In cases of defamation and anti-gay violence, our team of staff and volunteers are on the ground connecting individuals and allied organizations with the media to ensure that stories are told in a fair and accurate way.
