Fights for recognition and role of the mass-media: the meanings of the Gay Pride Media coverage of protest events represents a growing field of research for social movement investigation. Usually, scholars tend to study media as tools for mobilization and the relation between media and social movements is generally analysed as a matter of access. The hypothesis of this article is that media are actors who interact with social movements, their opponents and allies in order to define the meanings of the protest. It will then be assessed how media participate in the process of frame construction. The analysis of the Italian national Gay Pride of 2002 provides the opportunity of answering this question. The empirical research is based on newspaper articles and pictures published by newspapers when covering the mobilisation. Keywords: Social Movements; Gay and Lesbian Mobilizations; Media Frame Analysis; Homosexual Identity.
