Thursdays at the Handwerker: Media Portrayals of LGBT Characters on TV


Contributed by Mara Baldwin

The Handwerker Gallery is pleased to be hosting Lis Maurer's presentation, "Media Portrayals of LGBT Characters on TV" on Thursday, November 1, at 6.00 p.m.  Light refreshments (read: cookies!) will be served.

The New Normal, Modern Family, Pretty Little Liars, Glee...there are more LGBT characters on TV than ever before. Does this enhanced visibility benefit us? Hold us back? A little of both? Come contribute to a facilitated discussion of what's going right, what's going wrong, who the characters are that you love to watch, and who would be the characters you want to see in the future.

All Handwerker Gallery events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.; Thursday, 10.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.; and weekends, noon to 5.00 p.m.. The gallery is closed to the public on Tuesdays unless otherwise specified for an event but can accommodate group or class visits by appointment.
