NEW YORK, NY - GLAAD, the world's leading LGBTQ media advocacy organization, today released the tenth edition of its Media Reference Guide, the industry standard style guide for reporting on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer ( LGBTQ ) people and the issues that affect their lives.

For more than two decades, the GLAAD Media Reference Guide has provided journalists with the essential information they need to report fairly and accurately on the LGBTQ community. The GLAAD Media Reference Guide has also informed the style guides of leading news organizations including The Associated Press, Reuters, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and others.

The newly released tenth edition of the guide includes an updated terminology section and, for the first time, encourages journalists and other media content creators to adopt the use of 'LGBTQ' as the preferred acronym to most inclusively describe the community. The tenth edition of the GLAAD Media Reference Guide is available here: http://glaad.org/reference.

GLAAD today also renewed its commitment to working on behalf of queer-identified people, updating its mission to include "queer" in the organization's work to accelerate acceptance for LGBTQ people. GLAAD's powerful media programs will continue to share stories from the LGBTQ community that lead national dialogue, build understanding, and drive acceptance forward.

"The GLAAD Media Reference Guide is the industry standard for fair and accurate reporting on the LGBTQ community, and informs the style guides of the world's leading news organizations," said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "This latest edition reflects the increasingly diverse ways LGBTQ people, especially young people, talk about their identities."

Additional updates to the GLAAD Media Reference Guide include an updated glossary of terms that includes "Asexual," "Aromantic," and "Intersex"; an updated transgender terminology section; and updated In Focus sections for reporting on the bisexual community, nondiscrimination laws, religion and faith, and HIV & AIDS.
