Kam Burns: Engagement Editor, Politico; Founding Member - Trans Journalists Association

On this episode, we’re joined by Kam Burns. Kam is an engagement editor at Politico, working on social media strategy after a couple of years in a similar position for Wired.

Kam is also a founding member of the Transgender Journalists Association. He does freelance writing. In the last couple of years, he’s written pieces on the transgender travel experience published in Allure and National Geographic

Kam talked about the work he does at Politico and what makes working with social media such an interesting job.

He also talked about the TJA - why it was founded, the types of things it does, and the types of things it wants to do.

Kam cited The 19th as a journalism organization doing great coverage of trans issues and also recommended listening to an episode of Life Kit on making the workplace more trans-equitable.
