Scenes from Philadelphia: LGBT Media Journalists Convening 2015: Friday and Saturday

Posted on 20 Mar 2015 at 3:06pm

Thanks to the National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Association and the Evelyn & Walter Haas Jr. Foundation, I got to spend the weekend of March 13-15 in Philadelphia, attending the 2015 LGBT Media Journalists Convening, a gathering of LGBT editors, publishers, reporters and bloggers working specifically in the LGBT media.

I learned a great deal, had my eyes opened to some new perspectives and got to meet, in person for a change, a number of professional journalists I have long admired. I also had the chance to wander around downtown Philadelphia, a city I had never visited before. I was fascinated by that beautiful city filled with history and with — at least in my experience there — friendly, helpful people.

I wanted to share a little of my experience by sharing a few of the many photos I took there. This bunch were taken on Friday and Saturday. Watch for photos from my Sunday sojourn, which will include photos of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
