TELEBRIEFING: Public Opinion and Media Analysis on the Intersection of LGBT and Race Issues
Wednesday, September 12, 2012
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST
Please join The Opportunity Agenda for a presentation of new public opinion research and analysis of media coverage on the intersection of LGBT and race issues.
A growing number of advocacy organizations are working at the intersection of racial justice, sexual orientation, and gender identity, challenging the myths and biases that continue to hamper the rights and opportunities of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people, especially LGBT people of color.
Public Opinion and Discourse on the Intersection of LGBT Issues and Race (PDF) provides important insight into public opinion about LGBT people of color and their rights, and examines related discourse in African-American media, Latino media, and social media. It also reveals challenges and opportunities for improving the media content. Speakers will discuss these findings and the impact they have had on their work. There will be time for questions from the audience.
