Hi comunicado,

The GLAAD website is a great place to start.

" The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is dedicated
to promoting and ensuring fair, accurate and inclusive representation
of people and events in the media as a means of eliminating homophobia
and discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation."

These might be useful keywords:

media framing priming gay issues

media frameworks gay issues

communications resources queer media

It's a fascinating topic! Good luck with your research.
