Taboom receives support from The Palette Fund for “Tracking Hate” LGBTQI+ journalism project

Taboom Media has received a two-year grant from The Palette Fund to support Tracking Hate: Reporting guides and panel discussions to help U.S. journalists investigate how domestic groups are fomenting anti-LGBTQI+ hatred and undermining human rights in the U.S. and abroad.

As part of the grant, Taboom Media will create and widely distribute reporting guides (including via panels) with background, tips, and sources to help journalists investigate and report on how political, civil society, and faith groups in the U.S. fuel anti-LGBTQI+ hatred domestically and abroad. In addition to exposing and dissecting these tactics, the guides and panels will introduce journalists to existing projects that fight LGBTQI+ discrimination and hate speech.
