Robby Byrd

First and foremost, I am a storyteller, who has spent most of my career telling the stories of people often forgotten or ignored. Social justice and advocacy have always been central to my mission as a professional journalist, journalism educator and media researcher. This passion has helped me to develop into a dynamic, highly technical, hands-on media professional with a wealth of knowledge and experience successfully managing media projects ranging from journalistic endeavors to qualitative primary research. My primary area of focus is LGBTQIA+ communities and media, including LGBTQIA+ representations in mainstream media.
