GLAAD BARES ALL
Catalyst March Issue 1999
The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) announced in January the nominees for its 10th Anniversary Media Awards. If you guessed that the anti-Catholic play, “Corpus Christi,” was nominated for Outstanding New York Theater Production for Broadway and Off-Broadway, you were right. If you guessed that the anti-Catholic play, “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told,” was nominated for Outstanding New York Theater Production for Off-Off Broadway, you also guessed right.
This says two things: a) GLAAD not only does not object to defamation against Catholics, it supports it, and b) if the results had been different, we would have been surprised.
The winners won’t be announced until the spring. You can state your concerns by writing to Joan Garry, executive director, GLAAD, 150 West 26 Street, Suite 503, New York, New York 10001. You might simply ask to for an explanation.
