OUT Magazine, GLAAD: Net Neutrality Repeal a ‘Blow’ to Minorities, ‘Particularly LGBTQ’

OUT Magazine and GLAAD both claimed on Thursday that the repeal of net neutrality is a “blow to minority communities, particularly LGBTQ web users.”

“Losing net neutrality would deal a blow to minority communities, particularly LGBTQ web users, who depend on a free, impartial Internet to stay connected,” claimedOUT Magazine on Thursday, before the FCC voted to repeal net neutrality.

In their article, the magazine also covered similar remarks made by GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis, who proclaimed, “Life-saving opportunities happen online… One of the greatest gifts that our community has been given is the Internet because we didn’t have to come out publicly and risk our whole lives. We could come out where it was comfortable.”

On Twitter, Ellis also claimed that, “Stripping away #NetNeutrality is the latest attempt by the Trump Administration to silence voices of already marginalized communities and render us invisible,” while in their own Twitter post, OUT Magazine declared, “This vote is a huge blow to the LGBTQ community,” before deleting the tweet soon after.

GLAAD also made similar claims in their own post on Twitter, prompting criticism from gay conservatives.

The repeal of #NetNeutrality is an attack on the LGBTQ community

Earlier this year, OUT Magazine fired journalist Chadwick Moore after he came out as a conservative, while in July the magazine encouraged readers to “drop” gay conservative friends in an article titled, “What To Do When Your Friend’s a Gay Republican.”
