5th Annual LGBT Media Journalists Convening

The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association is proud to host the 2014 LGBT Media Journalists Convening, sponsored by the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund.

With the theme of "Honing Our Game," the forum will be held Friday, Feburary 28 to Sunday, March 2, 2014, in Washington, D.C. The goal of the forum is to strengthen the capacity of LGBT members of the media and blogosphere to more deeply understand and more effectively communicate critical issues facing the LGBT community, as well as assist in increasing the presence and diversity of LGBT bloggers in the national blogging community.

The convening will use an interactive approach to help attendees build their journalism skills, learn more about LGBT-centric topics beyond marriage equality and employment law and expand audiences through on-site media training with broadcast experts.

Attendees will report, blog, livestream, tweet, etc., all through the event. NLGJA members not attending are invited to follow the social media action, to join the conversation and learn as well. Follow #LGBTMedia14 to be part of the conversation.
