GLAAD Praises Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair Cover, Living ‘As Your Most Authentic Self’

GLAAD, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (Lgbt) media advocacy organization, released a statement Monday praising Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover. “By sharing her journey with the world, Caitlyn Jenner is accelerating acceptance of transgender people everywhere and reminds us all how important it is to live as your most authentic self,” GLAAD president & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said. “For a transgender person to step into the world as his or her authentic self is a moment of tremendous freedom,” GLAAD’s director of programs and transgender media Nick Adams added. “The world can now see »

Transgender Hollywood: Will Bruce Jenner Change the Industry?

5 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the first breakthrough transgender star in Hollywood, Laverne Cox has certainly mixed it up with the A-list. The “Orange Is the New Black” actress recently attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where she rubbed shoulders with the president (“Oh God — he knows who I am!”). She fan-girled out for Viola Davis at the SAG Awards, mingled with Jon Hamm at an Emmys after-party, and received a Christmas card from Beyonce. But nothing compared with the time she ambushed her idol at an Essence magazine luncheon.

“This is the hand that Oprah touched,” Cox says, extending her wrist. “I didn’t want to wash it.”

In June, Cox will slip back into the unglamorous outfit that opened these doors — the drab beige prison uniform from Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” which enters its third season. It’s one of the many priorities on the 30-year-old actress’s packed schedule. »

Transgender Issues & Media Responsibility: Who's Getting It Right, And How to Do It Better

27 April 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hollywood has made major headway with gay, lesbian and bisexual characters in television and films—with still a long, long way to go—but far less has been done to shed light on transgender portrayals in the media. GLAAD spokesman Nick Adams sat down with E! News and spoke about the representation of transgender people in the media and how they've been typecast over the past decade as "either psychotic killers or tragic murder victims." "The most common job shown for transgender characters on television is a sex worker…There have not been good, strong, multidimensional, well-rounded portrayals of transgender people." But Adams says things are getting »

Transgender Representation in the Media: Why Shifting the Paradigm Matters—And How It Brings ''Hope''

25 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Choosing to go public about transitioning is not only an incredibly difficult decision, but one that should be celebrated and respected. Nick Adams, the Director of Programs, Transgender Media at GLAAD spoke with E! News about how transgender celebrities help pave the way for others in the community to feel hopeful about their futures in the overwhelming face of violence and discrimination. "Forty-one percent of transgender people report attempting suicide—not thinking about suicide, but attempting suicide. It's not because transgender people are more mentally unstable than anyone else, it's because we live in a culture which makes it seem like it's nearly impossible to be a happy, successful »

Bruce Jenner Interview Highlights Transgender TV Series Boom

24 April 2015 8:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bruce Jenner’s disclosure in a heavily promoted ABC News interview that he is in the midst of transitioning to a female gender identity comes at a time when TV has heightened interest in transgender life stories.

ABC Family took advantage of the natural tie-in to promote its upcoming docu series “Becoming Us” during Friday’s two-hour “20/20″ special featuring Diane Sawyer’s interview with Jenner, the Olympian and former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star.

“Becoming Us” revolves around a teenage boy grappling with his father’s transition to a woman. The series premieres June 8 and hails from Ryan Seacrest Prods.

The Discovery Life channel earlier this month launched the unscripted series “New Girls on the Block.” The series focuses on six women in Kansas City, Mo., who are beginning to live openly as transgender. Conveyor Media has produced five hourlong episodes.

Discovery Life’s larger sibling, TLC, is preparing »
