Media Training: Insights from Ann Northrop

At our Big Meeting on January 18, 2018 Gays Against Guns was honored and thrilled to host a media training led by activist and journalist Ann Northop. 

A veteran journalist by the time she joined ACT UP in 1988, Ann had plenty of wisdom and practical knowledge to share. You can see her in action on the news program Gay USA. Check here for listings: http://gayusatv.org/

The forty-five minute training has been edited for ease of listening and divided into brief, easily digestible units. 

So, put on the earbuds, sit back, and take a listen.

And more importantly, come and join us!
