Tonight in midtown Manhattan, Michelangelo Signorile, Ann Northrup, Andrés Duque, and I will be on a panel discussing “Gay Media in America.” Starting at 7:00 PM, the roundtable discussion will be held at CUNY, the City University of New York. Our host is The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS), and our moderator is Tanya Domi, Director of Media Relations at the CUNY Graduate Center.

I’m really looking forward to this discussion, and I hope you’ll join us. Bring questions! Use Twitter hashtag #gaymedia, follow me at @davidbadash, CLAGS at CLAGSny, Tanya Domi at @TanyaDomi, Michelangelo Signorile at @MSignorile, and Andrés Duque at @Blabbeando.

“This roundtable convenes nationally acclaimed gay media professionals to discuss and examine the role of gay media outlets in U.S. and proffer arguments about the vital importance of reporting by gay media outlets known as specialty media,” CLAGS notes. “The panel includes Ann Northrop (co-host of a weekly cable Gay USA television program), David Badash (publisher and editor-in-chief of The New Civil Rights Movement forum blog), Andrés Duque (publisher and editor-in-chief of the Blabbeando LGBT blog), and Michaelangelo Signorile (host of OutQ Radio and the Michaelangelo Signorile Show, who are carried by Sirius Radio XM). Tanya Domi, Director of Media Relations at the Graduate Center will moderate the panel.”

“The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies provides a platform for intellectual leadership in addressing issues that affect Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender individuals and other sexual and gender minorities. As the first university-based LGBT research center in the United States, CLAGS nurtures cutting-edge scholarship, organizes colloquia for examining and affirming LGBT lives, and fosters network-building among academics, artists, activists, policy makers, and community members. CLAGS stands committed to maintaining a broad program of public events, online projects, and fellowships that promote reflection on queer pasts, presents, and futures. CLAGS makes its home at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.”

Wish I could watch live, but I am busy. Will have to watch it later if it is recorded and posted. Absolutely we still need an LGBT media, not only news, but series, short film, documentary and more. Youth who are coming to terms with their sexuality absolutely need to see positive role models they can identify with. They need to see they can be strong, healthy (and mentally healthy), successful, and still have families and love and positive relationships.

We need media that speaks to our interests, and our values and represents us, our great big diverse rainbow of community.

This is one of the reasons I got my degree in Film & Video Production. I wanted to get into media production for LGBT audiences. Broadcast, documentary, narrative film. Just anything that represents us.
