  • NFL Adds Wokeness to Super Bowl Week, Announces LGBT-Themed 'Night of Pride'

    Football is one of the few sports that Americans can enjoy that has no presence in June, which frees the NFL from turning away fans who do not want the LGBT agenda shoved in their face. Given that the LGBT lobby has claimed the entire month for itself, other sports that operate throughout those 30 days might feel pressure to make something of “pride” month -- and they do. The NFL, an August to February sport, could easily avoid the negative feedback from fans but has decided to go another route. The league announced Monday it will host an event...

    In 2021, The Dissenter reported that Grace Semler Baldridge–who goes by the stage name, Semler–had topped Lauren Daigle for the number one spot on the Christian music charts on iTunes. Baldridge was also nominated by GLAAD for the 2020 Award for Outstanding Digital Journalism for her documentary series, State Of Grace, and push against “gay conversion therapy.” And last year, the queer “gospel” artist was still topping the charts as she made the number one spot on Now Entertainment’s new songs list with her song, Don’t Tell Anyone, which features swear words and really, absolutely nothing about God. And most...
  • You Won’t Believe How Much LGBTQ Content Disney Produced Last Year

    On Tuesday, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) released its annual “Studio Responsibility Index” which tracks how much LGBTQ content various movie studios are pumping out each year. Of all the studios, in 2022, Disney topped them all. That’s right. Disney. “Walt Disney Studios included LGBTQ characters in all five of its Disney theatrical releases. While the LGBTQ representation in some films was groundbreaking in kids and family spaces, such as Lightyear and Strange World, other films’ inclusion was more minor, such as Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and other Marvel properties,” GLAAD writes in its...

    A group of Hollywood elites is calling for the censorship of people who oppose child mutilation. On Tuesday, a group of over 250 celebrities signed a statement from the LGBT activist group GLAAD that called on social media companies to crack down on people who oppose the trans agenda. The statement was addressed to several social media executives, including Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg, and Twitter’s Elon Musk. In the statement, the celebrities accused the social media giants of failing to adequately address “hate speech” against gay and trans people on their platforms. “There has been a massive systemic failure to prohibit...
  • Twitter worst among major social media platforms when it comes to LGBTQ safety, GLAAD says

    All major social media platforms do poorly at protecting LGBTQ+ users from hate speech and harassment — especially those who are transgender, non-binary or gender non-conforming, the advocacy group GLAAD said Thursday. But Twitter is the worst. In its annual Social Media Safety Index, GLAAD gave Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and Twitter low or failing scores, saying the platforms don’t do enough to keep their users safe. That said, most improved from a year ago. Twitter, which was acquired by Tesla CEO Elon Musk last October, was the only exception. GLAAD’s scorecard called it “the most dangerous platform for LGBTQ...
  • GLAAD is officially more worried about 'dragphobia' than they are about kids being sexualized

    Are you one of those horrible people who have a problem with drag artists performing for children? Well, you might think you’re just concerned about kids’ welfare and don’t believe that kids should be exposed to adult-oriented sexual material. But you’re wrong. It turns out, you’re nothing but a raging dragphobe. At least according to GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis: Dragphobia is on the Rise: "There is clear and present danger against our community and threats… we really haven't seen it at this level in over a decade, if ever." @sarahkateellis @TheTakeaway — GLAAD (@glaad) December 12, 2022...
  • GLAAD condemns Dave Chappelle, Netflix for his latest set of transphobic jokes

    10/08/2021 7:25:33 AM PDT · by mylife · 72 replies
    Dave Chappelle released a new comedy special, The Closer, on Netflix last night. Which means, with a depressing inevitability, that Chappelle also released a new set of jokes predicated on making fun of trans people, depicting them as thin-skinned bullies bound and determined to push poor, multi-millionaire comedians like Dave Chappelle around. GLAAD has now issued a condemnation of the special, which includes a loud declaration from Chappelle that he’s “Team TERF!” in addition to other transphobic material. Chappelle, in fact, devotes quite a considerable chunk of The Closer to talking about trans issues—i.e., the issue of trans people asking...

    The Federalist ^ | May 25, 2021 | Madeline Osburn
    There is a reason the transgender movement unleashed such immediate and intense pushback for even a mild attempt at highlighting instances of disappointment and regret with hormone therapy.CBS’s “60 Minutes” aired a segment Sunday night interviewing a number of individuals who, after undergoing hormone treatments and sex “reassignment” surgeries, decided to “detransition” back to their natural sex. Despite “60 Minutes” framing the story around transgender health-care access and critiquing a number of recent bills introduced at the state level to protect minors from experimental treatments, LGBTQ activists denounced CBS’s reporting as “ridiculous” “fearmongering.”CBS correspondent Lesley Stahl interviewed individuals who all...

    The Hallmark Channel, whose parent company advised last month that it would be including “LGBT” themes in its holiday lineup at the end of 2020, is not waiting until December to incorporate the sin of homosexuality into its original movie lineup. In what is believed to be a first for the network, online videos promoting “Wedding Every Weekend”, scheduled to air this Saturday, depict a scene where two women “wed” each other. “It really reflects the world that we live in now,” states actress Makayla Moore in a behind-the-scenes video. “It’s exciting to celebrate love in all its forms.” She...

    June used to be one of the best times of the year, it was warm enough to go to the beach, and everyone started having backward parties and cookouts. That is until the month of June was hijacked by gay liberal activist groups like GLAAD who want every company in America to ‘celebrate LGBTQ+ P For Pedopfile Pride Month‘. This year, the rainbow colored Skittles candy will go gray, and a dollar for every pack sold will be donated to GLAAD. Hmm, so I guess of you buy a pack of gray Skittles you are donating by proxy to a...

    Just when it seemed as though the transgender movement was reaching a fever-pitch and it was becoming impossible to stand up to the zealous mob of trans-enthusiasts, it appears some celebrities may have found the secret to shutting them down and evading the dreaded “cancel culture” imposed on anyone who dares speak truth or reason. Perhaps this culture battle is not all but lost after all. Back in December, famed author J.K. Rowling tweeted her support for Maya Forstater, a former tax expert who lost her job at think tank Center for Global Development for declaring that men and women...

    One of the nation’s largest gay advocacy organizations is greeting Chick-Fil-A’s divestment from Christian charities like the Salvation Army with tepid praise and further demands, including an “unequivocal” denunciation of the brand’s history and values. GLAAD (whose name is an acronym for its former title, “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation”) demanded “safe workplaces for LGBTQ employees” and an apparent denunciation of the Christian ministry Focus on the Family, responding to Chick-Fil-A’s decision to stop donating to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program for needy children and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which serves historically black colleges and universities (HCBUs)....

    The pro-LGBT pressure group GLAAD released its annual report on the state of LGBT “representation” in television last week, and while it found a rise in prime-time depictions of homosexual and transgender characters, it’s demanding that Hollywood double its efforts so that a fifth of regular primetime characters are LGBT five years from now. “Of the 879 series regular characters expected to appear on broadcast primetime scripted programming in the coming year, 90 (10.2 percent) were counted as LGBTQ,” the group reports, meeting an expectation set by the group last year and marking the “highest percentage of LGBTQ regular characters...

    A major gay rights organization is pushing for 20 percent of all television characters to be LGBT by the year 2025. According to a report called "Where We Are on TV", which was released Thursday from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the presence of characters who identify as LGBT in television programming is key to changing hearts and minds in culture. The report cites an online survey of 2,037 adults indicating that one-fifth of Americans ages 18-34 and that 12 percent of all adults identify as LGBT or other non-heterosexual, non-biological gender categories. GLAAD president Sarah Kate...

    GLAAD has released its “Where We Are On TV” report which breaks down the overall diversity of primetime scripted series regulars on broadcast networks and assesses the number of LGBTQ characters on cable networks and streaming platforms. This year, there is more good news than bad. “Where We Are On TV” showed that the needle has moved to an all-time high when it comes to LGBTQ series regulars. There was also a significant increase in racial diversity of LGBTQ characters on broadcast and cable — but there was a decrease in streaming. On top of that, for the first time...

    A survey produced by the Harris Poll in partnership with Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) finds young Americans’ comfort with LGBTQ individuals has plunged from 63 percent in 2016 to 45 percent in 2018. According to the Accelerating Acceptance report, Americans aged 18-34 who say they are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people dropped from 63 percent in 2016 to 53 percent in 2017, and then to 45 percent in 2018.

    Several LGBTQ organizations wrote a letter to GLAAD's president urging the group to abandon a push to pass an amendment enshrining LGBTQ rights in the Constitution. HuffPost reported Friday that a letter signed by the Human Rights Campaign, National LGBTQ Task Force, National Center for Transgender Equality and others urges GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis to cease efforts to advance an amendment campaign and instead engage with local advocacy groups to support their efforts. “While we certainly believe that the challenges facing the LGBTQ community require bold action, we also believe that advancing an amendment campaign is a harmful approach...
