For more than two decades,
GLAAD has been committed
to improving media coverage
of transgender people and
the issues they face. We work
with local journalists, national news
outlets, TV networks, film studios,
and Spanish-language media to
identify and amplify real-life stories
about transgender people, as well as
ensure fair and accurate portrayals in
scripted film and television.
Despite the growing number of
positive depictions of transgender
people in the media, myths and
stereotypes continue to appear in
news stories, particularly when it
comes to the vital legal protections
that transgender people – and the
larger LGBT community – still lack
in employment, housing, public
accommodations, and more.
Without a federal nondiscrimination
law, these protections are only
explicitly provided when states
and municipalities have LGBT inclusive
nondiscrimination laws and
ordinances.
