Examining trends in editorial standards in coverage of transgender issues
This research was commissioned by IPSO and undertaken independently by consultancy Mediatique. It provides a quantitative analysis of transgender coverage between 2009-19 and uses key case studies from the period to identify issues which could potentially align with the Editors’ Code. It also includes analysis from 43 interviews with newspaper and magazine editors, publishers, journalists, and groups and individuals from all sides of the debate, on what has potentially impacted on editorial standards.
