GLAAD (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is a U.S. organization that advocates for fair and accurate treatment of LGBT people in the media. It was founded in 1985 in response to homophobic reporting on the AIDS crisis, but has expanded its focus to include fictional representations of LGBT people in TV shows, films, and more, as well as news coverage and other types of media.

The annual GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.

The GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index (SRI) maps the quantity, quality and diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in films released by seven major motion picture studios.
