Covering the LGBTQIA+ 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. Panelists will walk you through the information that is reliable, the data that is not, and introduce you to some legal documents and government sources of information that haven’t got nearly enough attention.
This panel was planned in collaboration with NLGJA, The Association of LGBTQ Journalists.
The Exposing Systemic Inequities Track is sponsored by CNN.
