GLAAD's Entertainment Media Team accelerates acceptance by advocating for fair, accurate, and inclusive representation of LGBTQ people in the media including film, television, comics, video games, and music. As entertainment media is the United States' largest cultural export, the team's work to advise on scripts and advocate for more diverse LGBTQ storytelling has far-reaching impact. This team also combats problematic content and instances of defamation in entertainment. As part of the entertainment program, the GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect their lives. They raise the bar for LGBTQ inclusion across media.

GLAAD's Digital Program helps GLAAD accomplish its mission of media advocacy in the online space by overseeing the organization's entire digital footprint including social media, website, email and content partnerships.
