On October 14th, the Pride Foundation of Maryland will host a media training day for Maryland LGBT organizations, designed to share with them best practices for getting their stories covered, and leveraging social media.

The event will include a panel discussion with prominent professionals from print news, radio, TV, and public relations. Panelists include Jayne Miller, chief investigative reporter at WBAL; Tom Hall, midday host on WYPR; Michael Lavers, a news editor at the Washington Blade; Morgan Meneses-Sheets of Steadfast Strategies; and Ava Pipitone, head of the Baltimore Transgender Alliance.

The event is set for 9 am to 4 pm in the Lord Baltimore Theater at the Lord Baltimore Hotel (20 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore). Tickets are $10 per person and are available at Pridemd.org/mediaday. They are being sold to confirm attendance and to defray the costs but organizers do not want cost to be an impediment to participation. If you’d like to request a waiver please contact the organizers.
