GLAAD is an American media watchdog organization that monitors and reports on media issues. Their focus is sex and gender minorities, and they have done more than any other organization in history to improve media depictions of our community.
GLAAD was founded as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. In keeping with their initial mission to fight defamation, they have a convenient way to report defamation.
Of particular interest for this project is the Commentator Accountability Project, which is one of the indices used in The Transphobia Project. In 2021, GLAAD relaunched their Accountability Project with expanded listings:
The GLAAD Accountability Project documents anti-LGBTQ words and actions from politicians, commentators, organization leaders, journalists and other public figures who are often quoted in mainstream media about LGBTQ issues. The Project will be continually updated with additional research and GLAAD will continue to alert journalists and the public to the record as LGBTQ issues are debated and reported.
At its relaunch, it included the folllowing people:
Keith Ablow, Alexander Acosta, Samuel Alito, Barb Anderson, Kate Anderson, Ryan Anderson, Michelle Bachmann, Steve Bannon, Matt Barber, William Barr, David Barton, Gary Bauer, Bevelyn Beatty, David Benham, Andy Biggs, Marsha Blackburn, Ken Blackwell, Pam Bondi, Wellington Boone, David Bossie, Terry Branstad, Mike Braun, Andrew Bramberg, Jim Bridenstein, Mo Brooks, Brian Brown, Michael Brown, Scott Brown, Sam Brownback, Kirk Cameron, Orson Scott Card, Tucker Carlson, Ben Carson, Elaine Chao, Chris Christie, Pat Cipollone, David Clarke, Sam Clovis, Dan Coats, Richard Cohen, Kellyanne Conway, Salvatore Cordileone, Bob Corker, Monica Crowley, Ted Cruz, Kenyn Cureton, Steve Daines, Bradlee Dean, Robert Destro, Betsy DeVos, Bill Donohue, Ralph Drollinger, John Eastman, Jenna Ellis, Karen England, Lou Engle, Erick Erickson, Joni Ernst, Mark Esper, Mary Fallin, Jerry Falwell Jr., Joseph Farahm Michael Farris, Carly Fiorina, Bryan Fischer, Michael Flynn, Joe Fuiten, Tulsi Gabbard, Maggie Gallagher, Jim Garlow, Scott Garrett, Robert George, Shannon Goessling, Neil Gorsuch, Paul Gosar, Franklin Graham, Lindsey Graham, Diane Gramley, Mark Green, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Germaine Greer, Richard Grenell, Nikki Haley, Thomas Hardiman, Linda Harvey, Josh Hawley, Mike Heath, Laurie Higgins, Mike Huckabee, Laura Ingraham, EW Jackson, Kay Coles James, Robert Jeffress, Linda Jernigan, Jeff Johnston, Alex Jones, John F.
