The Golden Girls Meet Miami Vice
Featuring DJ Citizen Jane
Visit with friends and colleagues. Have a beverage from the bar. Bid on some fabulous silent auction items. Relax and unwind after a full weekend of activities and learning. And dance the night away as we celebrate in the style of Miami Vice and the Golden Girls.
The Closing Night Reception will honor the best in the business and inductees into the LGBT Journalists Hall of Fame. NLGJA will induct two new members into the Hall of Fame, recognizing their courage and resolve, whatever the cost and whatever the difficulties: Ina Fried and LZ Granderson.
Visit with friends and colleagues. Bid on some fabulous silent auction items. Relax and unwind after a full weekend of learning and activities. Have a beverage from the bar. And dance the night away. But most importantly, wear your best 80s.
The Hall of Fame was established in 2005 as part of NLGJA’s 15th anniversary celebration to make sure that the stories of these groundbreaking LGBT journalists are told and preserved — not just for us, but for all journalists and all readers, listeners and viewers. In 2016, NLGJA is inducting two new members and recognizing their courage and resolve, whatever the cost and whatever the difficulties.
Join us to honor them and the achievements of our Excellence in Journalism Award Winners.
A ticket to the silent auction and reception is included in each convention registration.
Excellence in Journalism Awards presented: Journalist of the Year, Sarah Pettit Memorial Award for the LGBT Journalist of the Year, Hall of Fame
