Trends in Canadian Newspaper Coverage of Gay-Straight Alliances, 2000-2009
Herriot, Lindsay
Journal of LGBT Youth, v8 n3 p215-233 2011
Gay-straight alliances (GSAs) in Canadian public schools have gained considerable attention from print media since reports first surfaced in the year 2000. This study tracked and analyzed Canadian newspaper reporting about GSA creation. It summarized the shift in public opinion toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth activism by analyzing how Canadian newspapers reported on emerging GSAs. The emergence of Canadian GSAs was grounded in what is known about the social, political, geographical, and legal contexts of the first decade of the 21st century. This study framed the textual evidence of emerging Canadian GSAs that was reported in the newspapers as one measure of public opinion toward LGBTQ youth activism.
