Getty Images has teamed up with GLAAD, the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer media advocacy organization, to launch a global creative grant worth $25,000 (approximately £21,700 / AU$40,000). It’s available to anyone in the queer community who is openly and authentically exploring celebrations, events and actions around the theme of chosen families. 

The grant will hopefully help diversify people’s perspectives, challenge harmful stereotypes and, by giving LGBTQ+ content creators a platform to have their voices heard, and enable the community to share its day-to-day experiences. Members of the LGBTQ+ community are so often underrepresented, and their coverage in the mainstream media can be limited to Pride and Pride events, and this grant should help move away from that.
