During a recent trip to Mexico, GLAAD met with the organizing committee of Mexico City Pride, Red Orgullo 31. GLAAD will be collaborating with the committee to release the GLAAD Spanish Language Media Reference Guide to the Mexican LGBT community and assisting with the communications plan for next year’s pride festivities.
Since a high percentage of Spanish language programming is imported from Mexico, we are establishing our first monitoring group in Mexico City to capture and respond to defamation from programming that is being imported into the United States.
GLAAD also held meetings with Las Musas de Metal, conducted an interview with the radio show Divergencias from eradio about our Spanish language Media Reference Guide and held an editorial meeting with the most widely circulated LGBT magazine in Mexico, OHM CIAO CLICHES!.
At this year’s 31st Mexico City Pride March, GLAAD presented Giovanni Falchetti with the GLAAD Media Award for Best Spanish-Language Music Artist. Learn more - Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation GLAAD
