The Peter reports on the NLGJA conference

Actually, LaBarbera sent an Americans for Truth Against Homosexuality proxy, Allyson Smith, to cover the event (that coverage is to come), but The Peter rolled the news out  with unbiased reporting like this:

Approximately 500 journalists, editors, producers, travel writers, bloggers and other communications workers from homosexual and mainstream media outlets gathered August 30 – September 2 for the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association  (NLGJA) annual conference.  As at past NLGJA conferences, conservative-leaning Fox News Network was among the sponsors and recruiters.

Titled “Breaking Stories, Breaking Waves,” the convention, held in downtown San Diego's Westin Horton Plaza hotel, featured a one-day LGBT media summit, six receptions, and more than 50 sessions and workshops ranging from “Covering LGBT Conservatives” (oddly, the Christian-conservative-bashing Wayne Besen was a panelist), to “Will Gays Matter in '08?” to “Sex Writing for Fun and Profit.”

…The convention included plenary sessions on the military's “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” policy and immigration issues affecting homosexuals, as well as a general session featuring a conversation with Larry Kramer, founder of the AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power (ACT UP), a radical, “in your face” demonstration group that made headlines in December, 1989, for disrupting a Catholic Mass and destroying a consecrated Communion host at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City.

He lists the participating sponsors and news organizations, ostensibly to let “Christians” know that they are associating with/supporting homos covering the news. I'd venture a guess that sponsors and career expo attendees such as Reuters, the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau, GM, Toyota, Sony, the Canadian Tourism Board and even Fox don't give a rip what the Peter's fundies think of them when it comes to recruiting and hiring.
