While opinions towards the LGBTI community have become more favorable over the past five years, the road to equality is still a long one. Social media, which puts a face to stories of struggle and triumph from LGBTI individuals, has, and will continue to play a major role in effecting change on a global scale. Logo, the leading entertainment brand inspired by the LGBTI community, is running a year-long “Global Ally” multiplatform storytelling campaign to educate, unite and encourage action around the world. In this panel, activists will share their stories and explain the impact that social media and campaigns like Global Ally can play in turning the tide in the LGBT civil rights movement.
