Announcement from Social Issues Editor Sydney Trent, Deputy Local Editor Monica Norton and Local Editor Mike Semel:

We are pleased to announce that Tara Bahrampour has received the Excellence in Transgender Coverage Award from the NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists.

Tara was cited for her powerful Crossing the Divide project. The stories, told through recently transgendered men, illuminated the differences in life as a man and as a woman. The unique perspectives provided powerful observations and first-hand accounts of people’s very different reactions to gender.

NLGJA is an organization of journalists, media professionals, educators and students working from within the news industry to foster fair and accurate coverage of LGBTQ issues.

Please join us in congratulating Tara.
