Welcome to InterMediaUK
We are an LGBT+ network group for people working across the media and creative industries spectrum. Currently there are members from TV, film, PR, publishing, advertising and computing.
Our monthly socials provide a relaxed atmosphere in a social setting to meet people from across the media and creative industries as well as catch up with friends and colleagues. In 2018 we’re working hard to bring you a variety of different events – so far we’ve had comedy aboard the Tattershall Castle, an LGBT tour of the V&A Museum, a panel discussion at Viacom for International Women’s Day and a Quiz at the BBC Bar!
Our next event will be a special panel discussion on the eve of World Press Freedom Day, hosted at BBC Broadcasting House in London. Chaired by Hugo Greenhalgh – the editor of Openly – the panel will talk about their experiences and knowledge of LGBTQ+ reporting in restrictive locations, as we look at World Press Freedom Day through an LGBTQ+ lens.
