GLAAD has designed a new resource the aim of which is to make the administration of Trump think about LGBT people and their rights. And they decided to do it in a very unusual way – showing these people how homophobic they actually are. The resource is for journalists, editors, producers, and other news makers reporting on the Trump administration which catalogues the anti-LGBTQ statements and actions of Donald Trump and those in or being considered for his administration.
GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said: “Since Donald Trump’s rise to president-elect, we have seen an unprecedented amount of misinformation and blatant lies go unquestioned and unchallenged in national news media. The rampant misinformation promulgated by Trump and those in his circle often contributes to a climate of hostility that puts marginalised communities in harm’s way. The Trump Accountability Project will shine a spotlight of truth on the hateful records of individuals who are or may be participating in the upcoming administration.”
