Glaad Bans the NY Post from it Gala
Glaad Media Awards will be taking place in Manhattan Saturday, this is just one of few awards galas that will be held this year. This year in NY they will be honoring Anderson Cooper, a once closet case to the highest order. They will be giving him the Vito Russo Award, and it it said Madonna will be presenting the award to him, how nice.
The New York Post, I guess asked for a press pass and it was denied due to the fact the NY Post doesn’t play nicely with the LGBT Community. More importantly they, The Post won’t bow down to Glaad, that is one reason too.
GLAAD was founded in 1985 to challenge The New York Post's blatantly anti-gay coverage of the HIV/AIDS crisis. More than 27 years later, the paper continues to defame the LGBT community with its sensational framing of transgender stories and its disgraceful practice of referring to transgender people with vulgar slurs. "The Post has been digging its feet in the ground for too long on this issue," said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick. "Transgender people, particularly those who are victims of crime, deserve more than the vile slurs and underhanded 'jokes' with which the Post describes them. Until this paper changes its ways and apologizes for the damage done, GLAAD has no interest in supporting their work."
Glaad is apart of Gayinc, which here lately is nothing more than a Bully Organization. They have been criticize for goes easy on those network that do bash or really make fun of the LGBT community if the network gives them a very large donation.. Those networks that don ‘t gets their full attention.
