A panel of openly gay journalists will share their experiences and advice on being out in journalism today. What are the pros and cons of being out to your superiors, co-workers, sources?
What is the responsibility of a gay journalist when it comes to a news organization's LGBT coverage? Has sexuality become a non-issue, an advantage? A disadvantage?
