Publication of Manual for Journalists Covering the LGBTI Community

This manual aims to serve as a practical, informative and educational guide for journalists and editors across the media spectrum, who are interested in conducting accurate and ethically-driven reporting, and in offering qualitative and substantial coverage and understanding of the LGBTIQ community.

It provides an overview of the main legal framework and human rights mechanisms that guarantee the protection of LGBTIQ rights that make the basis upon which reporting on LGBTIQ can be conducted. Additionally, the manual includes a discussion on the spectrum of sexuality in order to provide a more thorough understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity; the aim of the latter is to particularly deconstruct and challenge the more conventional and traditional gender roles that often constitute the problematic basis upon which LGBTIQ individuals are misunderstood.
