HMI Speaker Series: May 2019
LGBTQ REPRESENTATION IN MEDIA
As a youth serving organization, HMI recognizes the importance of youth seeing themselves represented on all media platforms. The presence of LGBTQ characters has steadily increased over the years, and we have witnessed incredible breakthroughs both in front of and behind the camera.
This conversation will touch on the successes we see in media, and the work that’s yet to be done. We will hear from individuals who come from an array of media backgrounds, representing both LGBTQ-specific and mainstream media brands to bring a fresh and diverse perspective to the conversation.
