GLAAD releases new media guide: 'Covering 2020: A Tip Sheet for Journalists Covering the 2020 Election'

NEW YORK (June 26, 2019) - GLAAD, the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, ahead of tonight's first 2020 Presidential debates, today announced the first in a series of tip sheets for journalists covering the 2020 election aimed at informing national and political media about the top issues facing LGBTQ Americans. GLAAD's guide, 'Covering 2020: Vol. 1, A Tip Sheet for Journalists Covering the 2020 Election'

[www.glaad.org/sites/default/files/GLAAD%20Tip%20Sheet.pdf], covers LGBTQ-specific topics, like banning so-called conversion therapy practices, while also focusing on the bread-and-butter issues that directly impact all voters, including LGBTQ families.

GLAAD's 'Covering 2020' tip sheet release comes in the wake of a new survey from GLAAD and the Harris Poll released yesterday, which found that LGBTQ acceptance fell amongst younger American voters ages 18-34, to a 45% level of 'comfort' compared to 53% just last year.

'As we see acceptance of LGBTQ people wane within younger generations, it's imperative for the media to cover our issues and perspectives and ask all 2020 presidential candidates the tough questions about what their plan is to help the LGBTQ community feel safe and accepted in the United States,' said Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD. 'We have a great deal yet to accomplish in order to achieve full equality and acceptance, and it's critical that candidates in both parties and in the media address the issues that matter and not erase LGBTQ people from the 2020 narrative.'

GLAAD urges the media to use its 'Covering 2020' tip sheet as a compass for covering LGBTQ-specific issues that matter to LGBTQ Americans. From the horrific violence transgender women of color face to the growing movement of LGBTQ organizations and allies demanding additional nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans, such as the Equality Act, the media have a responsibility to not just tell these stories but demand answers from elected leaders who wish to be in the Oval Office come January 2021.

So far under his presidency, President Trump and his administration have been responsible for issuing more than 115 attacks against LGBTQ Americans in policy and rhetoric since taking office in 2017. The entire list of the Trump administration's anti-LGBTQ actions, which include Trump's ban on allowing transgender Americans from enlisting in our nation's armed forces to opposing the Equality Act, can be found by visiting GLAAD's Trump Accountability Project at www.glaad.org/trump.
