Speaking Up: Trans Media Training

"For most of the last century trans people were the objects of discussion by others. No more." - Natacha Kennedy

Now we're speaking up! Join TENI for a full day media training.

> How can we influence the media to tell the stories we want heard?
> How can we effectively represent our diverse experience and identities?
> How can we protect our privacy but raise the visibility of important issues facing our community?
> How can we contribute or make a difference if we don't want or can't be 'out'?

Participants will develop new skills, gain useful tools and build confidence in dealing with the media. You'll also have time to network with people from trans organisations from Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and the UK.


> Know your Donuts: Getting Your Message Across in Social Media - Orlaith O’Sullivan, TENI
> Tweeting for Change - Paris Lees, Trans Media Watch
> Positive Engagement: Working with the Media Productively - Paris Lees & Sarah Lake, Trans Media Watch
