The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is launching an Advertising Media Program as part of its national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy and anti-defamation
work, and that it will also honor Levi's and Wells Fargo with Special Recognition awards for their ongoing commitment to LGBT-inclusive advertising.
The Media Program will monitor ads for
defamation, and "work to ensure fair and accurate representations of the LGBT community. Advertising plays a vital role in how people view the world and our community," the group says. "We are
thrilled to expand our media advocacy work on behalf of the LGBT community."--Sarah Mahoney
