study was conducted by GLAAD, one of the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy groups, and published on Wednesday.They found that 84% of LGBTQ adults believe that there are not enough protections on social media to prevent harassment.

GLAAD says that tech companies are not transparent enough about how they respond to online hate and reveal too few details about how often they take down posts or accounts that push harass LGBTQ users.The report graded the policies and actions the platforms have implemented around LGBTQ issues, taking into account features such as whether those platforms block discriminatory ads or allow their users to publish their pronouns on their profile.Twitter and TikTok, for example, have specific policies against intentionally misgendering or deadnaming a person.

Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, said it removes similar posts on request.GLAAD found that every single platform failed, scoring below 50 out of a possible 100.
