Missing Voices: A study of religious voices in mainstream media
Joining us at Creating Change 2012 in Baltimore, MD?
Presenters: Ross Murray, Director of Religion, Faith & Values, GLAAD
Words and images matter. That is why the representation of religious voices talking about LGBT issues is so important. This workshop will present the results of a recent study assessing the overt and implied bias in news reports about LGBT people and the use or absence of religious voices within such news reports. We will then discuss what the LGBT movement can do to better represent ourselves and our voices of faith. Come prepared to learn and plan!
