GLAAD 2024 Media Awards and Studio Responsibility Index Report

For this Out Takes program, we took a deep dive into the world’s largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer media advocacy organisation, who are so well known for their mission in increasing media accountability and community engagement that ensures authentic LGBTQ stories are seen, heard, and actualised that Taylor Swift name checked them in one of her biggest hits.

GLAAD formed in New York City as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation in 1985 to protest against what it saw as the New York Post’s defamatory and sensationalized AIDS coverage and has transformed over the past 39 years into a high profile and well respected organisation that aims to ensure fair, accurate, and inclusive representation across the media landscape and create national and local programs that advance LGBTQ acceptance. We examined their latest  Studio Responsibility Index Report they put out annually that indicates how the distributors and networks are representing the queer community on our screens and behind the scenes too (spoiler alert – it’s a mixed bag, lots of room for improvement). We also looked at the nominees and winners at the 2024 GLAAD Media Awards and revisited our recent interview with writer/director Andrea Pallaoro who’s film ‘Monica’ won this year’s award for Outstanding Film – Limited Theatrical Release.
