Washington, D.C. - The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA), the leading group for LGTB journalists, media professionals, educators and students throughout North America, drew together nearly 200 journalists and allies at its recent National Convention and LBGT Media Summit. The convention ran Sept. 10-13 in Montreal, Canada. The event offered a broad range of workshops to develop and enhance participants' journalism skills, and also hosted thought-provoking discussions of LBGT issues and more.
"This important gathering of LGBT journalists was an unqualified success, attracting attendees from all corners of the Unites States and Canada," said Michael Tune, NLGJA's managing director. "Our convention offered a great chance for learning and networking, but it also served as an opportunity to those leading the organization to reconnect with and reenergize our membership. This meeting strengthened our work to foster fair coverage of LBGT issues and fair treatment of LBGT journalists."
