Kirby Johnson

The first recipient of the Grant Halle Lambda Foundation Award at Laurentian is Kirby Johnson, a second year Masters student in the Human Kinetics program who focuses on sports, including media coverage. He was particularly interested in the impact of Russia’s antigay law on all the LGBT people who performed at, or attended, the Sochi Olympics. Kirby writes: “My research focuses on Canadian media representations of Article 6.21 of the Russian Federation Code of Administrative Offences (Russia's anti-gay law).
