Each year, the star-studded event raises tens of thousands of dollars for the organization’s programs, including those that provide scholarships to aspiring LGBTQ journalists. More than 350 journalists, news executives, dignitaries and allies attend this event each year in what has become one of New York City’s must-attend media events.
This evening draws together media industry leaders and some of the most high profile journalists in the nation’s capital along with enthusiastic supporters of the work of NLGJA – The Association of LGBTQ Journalists – in advancing fair and accurate coverage of the LGBTQ community and issues.
There are three kinds of people who attend journalism conventions: those looking for jobs, those looking to hire and those reuniting with friends and former colleagues. Most conventions have a rather equal distribution, but at NLGJA, the number of reuniting friends proves just how small and connected the journalism industry really is.
