This Friday: Meet Mexican gay rights advocate Antonio Medina

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) invites you to a “meet & greet” with Antonio Medina, well-known journalist and editor of Letra S, La Jornada’s monthly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and sexology supplement. La Jornada is one of Mexico’s most important newspapers. Medina will share his own experiences in trying to eradicate sensationalistic LGBT images in mainstream media.

Hear – from someone who’s always been at the forefront – how the LGBT community enacted Mexico City’s civil unions. Medina and his partner, Jorge Cerpa (pictured above in a photo from La Jornada) became the first gay couple who signed a civil union in that city.

Come & create ways to share vital information between your organization and Mexico’s LGBT community.
