Dismantling hate

This month on...

The Nature of Hate
As has been the case for many social and political minorities in our country, the LGBT community confronts a media landscape effective in spreading misinformation about it.

The most radical voices claim that gay and lesbian people are a threat to children, our country, even our way of life. But what many don’t realize is that these messages, crafted by a well-resourced media machine, not only inspire bias, but intense hate against LGBT people—hate often leading to violence. In this month's segment on IN THE LIFE, we look at hate-speech and whether, in a nation lacking legal protections for LGBT people, it incites violence against the LGBT community.
