While the visibility of LGBT people and issues continues to grow, far too often the voices,
views and faces of people of color are underrepresented, if represented at all, in American news, entertainment and online media. This initiative will help us elevate more voices and continue GLAAD's ongoing effort to ensure that LGBT issues are represented in a fair, accurate and inclusive way - celebrating the rich diversity of the community and our allies.

Rashad Robinson, GLAAD's Senior Director of Media Programs
