LGB and T people and the media

Written Out is a report on the portrayal of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the Scottish press.

The research showed that while some papers are getting better, many still publish homophobic articles, use outdated stereotypes, draw unnecessary attention to people's sexual orientation, and apply different news values to stories which involve gay people.

Others seem to ignore Scotland's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population altogether.

We are working to change media attitudes and improve the portrayal of LGB and T people in the media, and will keep this site updated as our work continues.
