John Ireland works as a freelance journalist and filmmaker, based in Los Angeles. “I am fascinated by democracy in action,” he says. “In my work, I get to meet people who have passion for life… who choose to live life on their own terms. It’s where these lives and society intersect that I find the story.”
He has focused on the gay rights movement, the electoral process and the effects of linguistics and semantics on everyday exchanges that connect us to one another.
As a journalist, Ireland has been published in numerous periodicals, including Newsweek, In These Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Baltimore Sun, The Tampa Tribune, and The Advocate. He contributed a chapter to the book, Losing It: The Virginity Myth.
