    There have been passionate RJ discussions about the role of race within the LGBT population. Here is a chance to "be part of a group of passionate and visible leaders to speak in national media outlets about issues that impact the lives of LGBT people and our families."

    The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is accepting applications for its National People of Color Media Institute. "The Institute will consist of a two-day, advanced spokesperson training program in Los Angeles from May 20 – May 22, 2011 and in New York from July 22 - July 24 where GLAAD staff, leading journalists and commentators and key media trainers will develop Institute participants in the areas of framing and messaging for on-camera and radio interviews. The program will be limited to 25-30 people, and participants will receive ongoing support, coaching and training from GLAAD staff, including quarterly progress reviews."

    Applicants from any ethnicity are eligible to apply. All that's needed is your résumé and a 500-word essay. Further details and the application can be found here. Note that the deadline is 11:59 PST on Friday 3/25/2011.
