Reina Gossett on “Growing Visibility: Transgender People in the Media,” a panel at Creating Change

When: Friday, January 31, 2014, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm (iCal) Where: Hilton Americas-Houston , 1600 Lamar St, Houston, TX (See map)

Communicating with media professionals can be particularly challenging for transgender people, who are faced with a range of obstacles, from navigating pervasive stereotypes, to being misgendered, and asked to answer invasive questions. Yet sharing personal narratives in the media can be an important part of transgender-focused advocacy work. In this workshop we will discuss ways of talking about your story while addressing the challenges of being transgender in the media spotlight.

Presenters: Dani Heffernan (GLAAD), Tiq Milan (GLAAD), Reina Gossett (SRLP), and Laverne Cox
