Story Summary:

This story is a straightforward Q&A with GALZ ED Chester Samba.

Topics: Discrimination, Marriage, Outing, and Political or religious leaders' statements

LGBTQI+ Identities: "homosexuality" (abstract) and LGBTQI+ (broad unspecified SSOGIE coverage)

Journalistic Issues: Journalistic approach is fair, balanced, objective, Language/terminology is accurate/inclusive, LGBTQI+A voices are sufficient, Negative myths/stereotypes are effectively challenged, and Visuals/photos are affirming and relevant

Rating: 2

Rating Rationale:

Q&As provide a great platform to let sources speak in their own voices and clarify misperceptions/bust myths. Some myths are perpetuated by the journalists’ questions, but the fact that Chester is allowed to debunk them immediately diffuses this issue.
