Achieving LGBTQ Equality In The Media

By Charlotte Robinson, July 16, 2021

The Rainbow Lifelong Learning Institute Boston is presenting a special virtual event “Achieving LGBTQ Equality Through The Media” with Emmy winner Charlotte Robinson on Tuesday July 20th from 12P to 1:30P EST via Zoom. With the Equality Act the most important legislation that would advance our LGBTQ civil rights pending in the US Senate our community is at a standstill. Mainstream media rarely addresses our LGBTQ issues except when they reach the US Supreme Court. With LGBTQ Pride being celebrated for the past two years mostly virtual due to the pandemic it is crucial that we form a media strategy & messaging to achieve full LGBTQ equality especially with the attacks on our transgender youth & transgender women of color. Robinson stated, “We’ve all watched the influence of the media elect government officials from local politicians to the Oval Office. Over the past decades our LGBTQ community has been developing an important mainstream media presence from Ellen DeGeneres to Rachel Maddow & Anderson Cooper to David Muir. However where we go from here is crucial to achieving full equality.” Take a journey with Emmy winner Charlotte Robinson as she talks about LGBTQ media representation through the decades & where we go from here. With her lifetime commitment to LGBTQ civil rights in 2004 Charlotte produced & directed the acclaimed short film OUTTAKE addressing marriage equality that morphed into the online news & entertainment network OUTTAKE MEDIA LLC. The Rainbow Lifelong Learning Institute Boston offers LGBTQ seniors & friends the opportunity to build & strengthen community through educational programs & social activities.“Achieving LGBTQ Equality Through The Media” on Tuesday July 20th from 12P to 1:30P EST via Zoom is a free event but you must register.  Register For Event…
