LGBT Stylebook: NLGJA put together this supplemental stylebook on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender terminology. This list is by no means exhaustive and authoritative, but it’s a good starting place if you’re just getting into LGBT coverage. Share it with your friends and colleagues. And remember: If you’re not sure, the best thing to do is just ask.



The National LGBTQ Task Force, NLGJA – The Association of LGBTQ Journalists, and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) have launched a Spanish-language stylebook for journalists reporting on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people. First published by NLGJA and NAHJ in 2005, “El Manual de Estilo Sobre la Comunidad Lesbiana, Gay, Bisexual y Transgénero” is available online and can be downloaded here.
