Pride Month Resource Kit for Journalists

Each June, cities and communities around the world celebrate Pride, an opportunity for celebration and reflection in honor of the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion. GLAAD, a non-profit organization "rewrite[ing] the script for LGBTQ acceptance," created this Pride Month Resources Kit for Journalists to help reporters "use Pride events as an opportunity to discuss the history of LGBT advocacy, show the diversity of the LGBT community, and examine recent gains and setbacks made by the community." The kit begins by highlighting Pride's historical roots and expanding presence today, then provides recommendations for inclusive media coverage. Recommendations note the importance of diversity and locality in the framing of news coverage. The kit also has a Story Ideas section with 10 suggested topics, including: "Interview senior members of the LGBT community in your area and get their perspective on the evolution of Pride and LGBT equality." The Terminology Suggestions section includes a link to the GLAAD Media Reference Guide, where readers can find additional information on inclusive language and a 40-page in-depth guide on how to "tell the stories of LGBTQ people fairly and accurately."
