    A Message from GLAAD President & CEO, Sarah Kate Ellis:
    “America is at a critical juncture when it comes to LGBTQ safety and support. At GLAAD, we know that fair and accurate representation in media and journalism have a powerful and measurable effect on the lives of LGBTQ people. While support for LGBTQ equality has reached an all-time high, allyship must turn into action. This June, media, content creators, and corporate leaders must lead and respond to hate with undeterred support for the LGBTQ community, including LGBTQ employees, shareholders and consumers and protect all that the LGBTQ movement has accomplished.”


    The GLAAD Media Institute (GMI), GLAAD’s training, research and consulting division works year-round to convene and coach community advocates, including local leaders and thousands of writers, creators and journalists across all levels of production and media. The GMI is also home to GLAAD’s core work in creative pipeline efforts for Hollywood and entertainment research & analysis, producing a number of innovative reports, studies and reporter guides throughout the year.

    GMI programs activated in June include:

    • GLAAD’s Communities of Color Department: A leading force driving equitable and accurate representation of Black LGBTQ+ people, people living with HIV (PLWH), and queer communities of color in the realm of entertainment and media.

    • The Black List: A curated list of the most promising unmade LGBTQ-inclusive film scripts. Writers and creators are invited to submit their work now through July 1, 2024.

    • Equity in Media and Entertainment Initiative (EMEI): A three year long experience will support a different group of Black LGBTQ creatives across various disciplines, with the first year cohort made up of short form filmmakers, second year focused on music artists, songwriters, and producers, and choreographers rounding out the program as the third year cohort.
