Where the LGBT journalists are this weekend…

From bloggers to newspaper editors, LGBT journalists are converging on Philadelphia this weekend to learn about ways to broaden our coverage, plus put faces to the names we all read each day.

The fourth-annual LGBT Media "Convening" is hosted by Bil Browning of the Bilerico Project, sponsored by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association, and paid for by the Evelyn & Walter Haas, Jr. Fund.

I'm thrilled to be among the attendees, along with journalists from LGBT media outlets around the country and prominent blogs like Feministing, New Civil Rights Movement, Towleroad, Think Progress, Joe.My.God, Mombian, and many, many more. Atlanta's own Mark King, whose columns from his blog My Fabulous Disease sometimes appear on our website, is on the list too.
