Tony Morrison (he/him), recently named GLAAD's Senior Director of Communications, is an Emmy and GLAAD award-winning journalist. At ABC News, Tony spearheaded the creation of the news network's first LGBTQ+ employee resource group for LGBTQ+ journalists and allies and oversaw the brand's social and digital strategy as a senior producer. Tony also co-hosts the D23 Inside Disney podcast, Disney's official podcast. In a personal essay published in August 2021, Tony shared his experience of living with HIV in secret over the course of eight years. This widely-read piece has brought greater awareness and understanding to many; Tony is shredding stigma by sharing his story and being a force for change.
