“No matter what you do in life, one of the most important things is to be true to who you are.”Katie Sowers has just signed on as assistant coach for the San Francisco 49ers, making her the first openly gay coach in the NFL. “Many people ask how I made it to where I am, on such an untraditional route and it’s easy to say ’you have to believe in yourself and dreams will come true’ but that’s only part of it, and in my opinion that’s only the second part,” Sowers wrote on Facebook.
Back in 2016, Xena’s battle cry was heard around the world when NBC announced it was rebooting the beloved fantasy series, with The 100 writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach tapped to helm. While the original Xena was drowning in queer subtext, this new version would depict the warrior princess as unapologetically gay.
"The more informed people are, the more likely they are to vote." An Australian escort is offering a deep discount to clients who vote “yes” in Australia’s upcoming public survey on marriage equality. Amber Leigh, who identifies as queer, came up with the inventive incentive. “I am an advocate for human rights, including LGBTI rights, and Australia still has a long way to go where that is concerned,” she told the Star Observer.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
