LGBTQ Media Training
We are pleased to offer members of the regional media (including students) a comprehensive training for working with the LGBTQ community. This event is sponsored by the ACLU of Pennsylvania, Three Rivers Community Foundation and Persad Center. The workshop is being organized by Sequal Consulting and Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents.

The workshop will include a review of best practices and reputable media/style guides, as well as two panel discussions. You will leave with multiple tools to use in your future coverage, a list of resources including contacts in the LGBTQ community and real life regional media examples of how to get it right.
