Planning has begun for the NLGJA 2016 National Convention & LGBT Media Summit in South Beach Miami.
NLGJA is pleased to announce that it has received a grant renewable for up to five years from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to deliver journalism training that will enhance strategies and skills in covering HIV/AIDS.
Last Thursday, NLGJA presented Jeffrey Toobin, a senior legal analyst for CNN and staff writer at The New Yorker, with the Randy Shilts Award for LGBT Coverage at its annual Dateline:DC event. The NLGJA Randy Shilts Award annually honors a journalist who or organization which consistently brings stories of the LGBT community to life in mainstream media. We’d like to thank him for his work going the extra mile to ensure that all Americans are aware of the unique struggles LGBT people face.
“I’m proud to be a regular NLGJA contributor knowing those funds will be used to further journalism and our very special community.”Mark Segal
