Here's a statement by GLAAD:

Timing and participants will be determined. We'll keep you updated. Our goal is to ensure better coverage that works toward ending anti-LGBT violence. Yesterday, CNN spoke out against anti-LGBT violence and Martin reported on Brandon White, a 20 year-old victim of an anti-gay attack in Atlanta.

This comes at a time when the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that violence against LGBT people was up 23%, and 70% were people of color.
