The Vanity Fair cover featuring Caitlyn Jenner certainly got some attention this week. The former Olympic decathlon champion completed her public transition by appearing in a gorgeous photo, shot by Annie Liebovitz. The reaction from the media and the public was quite positive.
Yet there were some hiccups along the way. Awareness of trans issues lags behind the understanding of sexual orientation in America - some people were simply uneducated about how to discuss Jenner's transition, while others were outright cruel.
Nick Adams from GLAAD joins us to talk about the reaction by the media to Jenner's story, some of the key pitfalls he wants to see the media avoid, and any mistakes Outsports has made along the way in attempts to cover the story with respect.
Nicholas Snow welcomes fellow longtime media activist Cathy Renna, currently a Managing Partner at Target Cue, an LGBT and HIV focused public interest PR and communications firm. She has played a critical role in media related to nearly every issue affecting LGBTQ populations, from high visibility issues like marriage equality and the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” to being the force behind creating more visibility for older LGBT people, homeless LGBT youth, transgender youth and a host of other populations and issues. In the 1990′s through 2003, she was a major force behind the success and growth of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
