GLAAD will be hosting a Transgender Advocates Media Training. This event is designed to prepare you to traverse the media landscape getting you fully equipped to handle media inquiries for you or your respective organizations smoothly. As transgender people become increasingly visible and the issues facing the community are consistently in the news, it's important that transgender professionals and advocates are ready to speak about these things in a way that is concise, succinct and beneficial to the advancement of the community.
The Trans Advocates Media Training will be a four hour long training at GLAAD's Manhattan office on January 22nd from 1pm-5pm. We'll have an informative and fun afternoon discussing some of the most pressing issues facing the community and how to use the media to advocate for change.
Lunch will be provided. Registration is free, but space is limited and on a first come first serve basis.
