Description

As part of an ongoing research project on media advocacy and the LGBTI identities, I was awarded a University Research Grant with funding to travel to New York to participate in media training by GLAAD. The content, skills and training strategies employed by GLAAD are being used in the larger, ongoing international research project. In March 2017, the research team is conducting media advocacy training for non-profit LGBT advocacy organizations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The training workshops will include strategies from GLAAD and generate qualitative data concerning the discursive construction and mediated representations of sexual and gender minorities in Vietnam. This presentation will address media advocacy for marginalized populations and the utility of creative focus groups in research. I will also be able to provide preliminary impressions on the data collected in Vietnam and how it compares with previous research we’ve published on the discursive construction of LGBTI
