Questionable Coverage? Submit to NLGJA's Rapid Response Task Force


NLGJA members and staff work daily with our colleagues in the news industry to fulfill the organization’s mission of fair and accurate coverage. Sometimes, though, a more targeted response is required to promote greater understanding about how to fairly and accurately cover the LGBT community.

NLGJA’s answer to this is the Rapid Response Task Force. This panel of working journalists from mainstream and LGBT media answers complaints about reporting seen as unfair and/or inaccurate by readers, viewers, listeners and our peer journalists.

It reflects the association’s mission of inclusive coverage of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, includes entries on words and phrases that have become common, and features greater detail for earlier entries.

It also includes an expanded contact list of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender organizations with websites, e-mail, and mailing addresses, phone numbers, and, when possible, media contacts.
