Trans Media Watch European Conference 2012
Sunday, 7 October 2012 from 10:00 to 16:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
The Trans Media Watch European Conference will be held on Sunday the 7th of October at the University of London Union. This event is designed to give members of the trans and intersex communities the chance to find out more about how the media works in the UK and abroad.
Panels and discussions will run from 10am to 4pm, with guests from the world of journalism and broadcast media, including Jane Fae, Evan Harris and David Allen Green, there to discuss how their industries work and how they might better serve trans and intersex people. There will be opportunities for you to air your views and to network. This is a chance to make your voice heard and help shape the future of the UK media.
In addition, guests from Germany, Ireland, Italy and Switzerland will be there to talk about how the media treats trans and intersex people in their countries. We hope that this will be a useful learning opportunity for everyone involved.
