Guidelines for journalists | ILGA-Europe

ILGA-Europe has released a set of guidelines for journalists covering LGBTQI+ issues. 

The guidelines provide clear recommendations on how to report on LGBTQI+related news, human rights, language, and specific recommendations for reporting on trans and intersex people. 

The guide also includes a list of essential resources for journalists seeking to stay up to date on LGBTQI+ issues. 

With the rise of anti-LGBTQI+ and anti-gender forces across Europe and the world, ILGA-Europe hopes that these guidelines will contribute to the quality and pluralism of the media landscape and support journalists in their work. 

These guidelines are particularly relevant as the rights of LGBTQI+s are increasingly threatened and marginalised in some European countries, including in Azerbaijan. By providing practical advice and resources, ILGA-Europe hopes to help journalists report on LGBTQI+ issues in a way that is accurate, respectful and inclusive.You can access the guide here.
