This summer AEJMC convenes its convention in San Francisco, a city known for its active Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender communities. Journalism educators wishing to advance accurate and fair journalism of these communities are invited to the second annual Leroy R. Aarons Summer Institute on Sexual Orientation in the News. Sponsored by the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and the AEJMC GLBT Interest Group, the institute can also help administrators meet the sexual orientation requirement of the ACEJMC curriculum standard. The Aarons Institute features presentations on key sexual orientation issues and discussions of how to better prepare ourselves and our students to understand and cover them. Presenters include scholars and professionals with international reputations in the field, local journalists covering these issues, and representatives of GLBT activist and professional organizations.
