B.A.R. seeks freelance reporters, sports columnist

The Bay Area Reporter is seeking freelance reporters to write about the diversity of the LGBTQ community, particularly LGBTQ people of color — in news, arts, and sports. The COVID pandemic may have reduced pages in our print edition, but the B.A.R. posts more (and more frequently) online nearly every day, and we need help.

For News, this includes local government, LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS nonprofits, LGBTQ community newsmakers, and other matters of interest. For Arts, we are looking to increase coverage of local arts events and local nightlife, each with an LGBTQ focus.

The B.A.R. will also soon have an opening for a freelance sports columnist. The ideal candidate would focus in part on news leading up to the 2023 Gay Games in Hong Kong. Other issues include the ongoing fights over trans inclusion in sports nationally, and other topics of interest.

Women and people of color and others are strongly encouraged to apply. The B.A.R. is an equal opportunity employer. For News and the sports columnist positions, send a resume and writing samples (can be online links) to Cynthia Laird, News Editor, at [email protected]. For Arts, send a resume and previously published writing samples (preferably online links) to Jim Provenzano, Arts and Nightlife Editor, at [email protected]

Help keep the Bay Area Reporter going in these tough times. To support local, independent, LGBTQ journalism, consider becoming a BAR member.
