WGSS 2800 - LGBTQ Media Action: Advocacy, News, and Praxis

Students in this course learn how to research, write, and produce radio, TV, text, web, and/or podcast content about LGBTQ+ issues relevant to local and regional communities. Students in the course receive access to and training in audio, video, and/or digital media production to address areas currently lacking news coverage and/or access to information, resources, and community in the southeast Ohio region. This class includes a praxis element that interrogates what stories get produced/disseminated and why, how we envision and create objectivity, and thus what our responsibility as advocates and activists is to those in our communities and those without similar access.
