GLAAD’s Director of Spanish Language Media, Monica Trasandes, and Entertainment Media Manager Jonathan Rosales were both recently asked to be part of, "Out and About," a panel by the Annenberg Latino Student Association at the University of Southern California.

“It was a great to have GLAAD there to discuss images and portrayals in both English and Spanish language media that these students may not be aware of. It was also a unique opportunity to show them how they, as future content producers, media professionals and community leaders, can help shape representations of gay and transgender people,” said Manuel Miranda, director of the Annenberg Latino Student Association at USC.
