Producing video, multimedia stories and editing the Gay Star Students section of global LGBTI news, entertainment and features site Gay Star News.
In my first year with Gay Star News I have focused on gathering exclusives, writing about agenda setting topics and growing our video output.
The content during my time running the ‘Students’ section has focused on empowering young people to talk about mental health, understand sex and relationships in a way the education system never allowed, and give young people a voice – editing regular contributor sumbissions.
I also led our groundbreaking Chemsex series, along the deputy editor David Hudson.
I also grew our coverage at our key partner in this section’s event, National Student Pride. Going beyond articles and video round-ups – I developed with NSP a whole stage for the section. The ‘Gay Star Students stage’ was live streamed at the NSP event with panels about being body confident, bisexual erasure and of a ‘puppy mindfulness session.’
