Queering Commercials: Examining LGBTQ+ Representation in the Media

When ads go viral, is it about inclusion or exploitation (or both)?  This workshop invites participants to explore LGBTQ+ social justice issues through a Media Literacy lens.  Bryan will share some resources to examine LGBTQ+ representation in commercials and ad campaigns.  This process encourages students to consider the value or harm of corporations and companies promoting inclusion and LGBTQ+ visibility in their campaigns.
