Story Summary:

Excellent story. Well sourced. It provides a good cautionary tale for journalists, who must triple check with sources (and use their own judgement) when it comes to anonymity.

LGBTQI+ Identities: "homosexuality" (abstract), Gay, Lesbian, 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, Research/context is factual and accurate, Source/subject safety is addressed adequately, and Visuals/photos are generic and neutral
