WorkPride 2023: Being LGBTQ+ in the Media: What's Changed?

Over the last few decades, LGBTQ+ representation in the media - both in terms of what we see, and who produces it - has evolved massively. We'll be hearing from people in the media about their journey and careers, how the industry has evolved, and how they navigate their identity within the workplace. We'll also be considering how the media can be a power for good in terms of increasing representation and equality, and what role we as consumers play in that.

    Tagg Magazine
    Eboné Bell is a business owner, speaker, and trailblazer who shines bright in the world of entrepreneurship, DEI, activism, and LGBTQ media. She is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Tagg Magazine. After seeing a lack of LGBTQ women represented in local publications, she decided to start a magazine and website to tell stories, provide resources, and create events. This year, Tagg Magazine celebrates ten years of telling thousands of stories, creating safe-spaces for queer women, and providing important resources for the LGBTQ community. Over the past four years, Tagg Magazine has been named “Top 25 LGBTQ-Owned Companies” by the Washington Business Journal. Eboné was recently featured in Forbes Magazine as an "Inspiring Black Entrepreneur Changing Our World." And that's exactly her mission: To create change and leave a stamp on this world. One of those stamps includes starting a student group for LGBTQ people of color while attending University of Maryland College Park. Eighteen years later the group is still going strong. ​She has produced such events as the annual Capital Queer Prom giving the older LGBTQ community a second-chance prom, Capital Pride Women’s Events, Pride in the Sky, and Put on the Gloves Fashion Show benefitting The Trevor Project, just to name a few. These events have raised over $50,000 for LGBTQ non-profit organizations. She continues her community work by serving on the board of the Equality Chamber Foundation, an organization providing financial awareness and economic opportunity to LGBTQ-owned businesses. In 2018, Eboné founded the Tagg Scholarship Fund—a scholarship created specifically for young, queer, women of color who can’t afford to attend school. In addition to running a queer women’s publication, she shares her knowledge and passion as a keynote speaker at conferences, schools, and events across the country.
