Covering the LGBTQ community is complex. Accurate data is hard to find, and even some of the smartest newsrooms in the business have made major missteps by offending interview subjects and their audience, failing to use appropriate language or making incorrect assumptions. Yet the community is an under-covered goldmine of great human stories.
This session will teach you about the best sources for reliable data. You’ll learn about successful strategies journalists have used to get at sensitive subject matter, even with reluctant sources. Panelists will introduce resources to help get your language right, show a few examples that got it wrong and discuss what we can learn from those examples.
