Flying the rainbow flag on air and in tech

Is the media, entertainment and technology industry failing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender talent and limiting on-screen presence - or can it be a force for good? Visibility of LGBT issues and people remains patchy across our industry, and colleagues in many countries face the daily threat of persecution and violence. We explore how major media and tech organisations are driving positive change, how strong LGBT storylines, characters and on-air talent can shape public attitudes, and ask whether the media technology business still has too many closets. Join us for important debate, a good dose of fun, and a great networking opportunity for all LGBT people and friends.
