“Local Correspondents Network” trainings has started in April, 2007 to strengthen the LGBT rights journalism and enable the local gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex individuals and organizations to articulate themselves.
Aimed at creating a local correspondent network to change the homophobic, transphobic, heterosexist and sexist language in the media, the trainings will help candidate correspondents research and make news from the city they are living in.
Volunteers who want to be a Kaos GL correspondent and make their own news would be a part of Kaos GL Magazine and kaosgl.org with their news/articles/interviews after the training.
What Does Kaos GL Expect from the Local Correspondents?
We expect to receive at least one (1) item of news, article or interview from our correspondents.
We want to make our own news ourselves and make news which are purified from homophobia and transphobia for the LGBT community.
We want to be up to date about LGBT in all areas of life such as Working life, Law, the rights of LGBT, Mental Health, Education and Campus, Family, Military, Culture& Art, from media to streets, and bring up this agenda to the pages of Kaos GL magazine and kaosgl.org in order to inform the LGBT community in Turkey. We aim to create opportunities to make LGBT be directly the subjects and primary sources of the issues they have in the cities they live in and establish a network for this purpose.
We would like to thank to the European Union for supporting the trainings and to the IstanbulSweetHome for being our accommodation sponsor.
