LGBTQ History Month: LGBTQ Film and Television: A Brief History

Local friends – come here me speak on the history of LGBTQ film and television at Fairfield Public Library. Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 7:00 pm. From Facebook,

Our final program for LGBTQ History Month is a trip though movie and television history focusing on LGBT characters and stories on Thursday, October 27th at 7 pm. Join Reference Librarian and Film Blogger Philip Bahr and learn where we’ve come from, where we are now and where we are headed. Register:

What makes a film or television series gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender? The creator? The characters? The plot? Using Vito Russo’s seminal work, The Celluloid Closet as a jumping off point, we will explore the depiction of LGBTQ characters and stories in film and television over the past 100 years. What themes stand out? Which films are must-sees from each decade? And where does television fit into the discussion?
