This assignment discusses the media framing of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer and transgender movement based on 10 source articles. The paper then analyzes the content demonstrating that there is essentially negative and positive framing.

From the Paper:

"Individuals with different sexual orientations or different sexual identities have often experienced discrimination and persecution in Western societies. For example, in 'Ideas for Action' Cynthia Kaufman states, Given the widespread and established nature of homophobia, it is not surprising that the most important demand for most gays and lesbians is simply for the right to love whomever they please (Kaufman 178). There is some evidence that the gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer and transgender movement has become very successful at reducing homophobia and increasing acceptance of different sexual orientation or different sexual identities.
