International Journalism Seminar on LGBT Issues and Story Coverage | NLGJA National Convention and LGBT Media Summit

Are you hungry for a career in global news? Would you like to travel and report on some of the world's most important and exciting global stories?

22 25 August 2013

LGBT journalists have had few opportunities to work as foreign correspondents. That’s especially the case in today’s media environment, with sharp cutbacks by many news outlets in their international coverage. At the same time, LGBT communities outside of the U.S. rarely receive coverage of global issues that directly affect their lives, from anti-gay violence and transgender rights to the status of LGBT marriages and the impact of social media on the international LGBT coverage.

This Resource File and Tool Kit aims to offer tools and basics on international LGBT reporting in our increasingly globalized world. It offers links to some of the best international journalism produced between 2012 and 2013, articles and special reports in which LGBT journalists based in the U.S. play an important role in covering and advocating for international developments. It also offers a list of resources and digital tools to produce global stories. Some of these resources offer information on how to get advanced training and experience so that journalistic reports will bring fresh perspectives of the LGBT world to U.S. audiences.

I hope you find this information helpful.
