The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association’s Stylebook has been a resource for countless newsrooms covering the LGBT community. Consequently, the organization is planning an expansion of this resource for those outlets delivering the news in Spanish.
As Adam Pawlus, NLGJA executive director, explained, “NLGJA is committed to providing newsrooms with resources to effectively tell the stories of diverse LGBT communities. By adding Spanish language resources to NLGJA’s Stylebook, we hope to help Spanish language media outlets accurately cover LGBT issues.
The NLGJA Stylebook is intended to complement the prose stylebooks of individual publications as well as the Associated Press stylebook. NLGJA’s stylebook reflects the association’s mission of inclusive coverage of LGBT people, includes entries on key words and phrases, and features greater detail than other prose stylebooks.
