Over the decades, Hollywood storytelling has been a major trendsetter when it comes to society's attitudes, concerns, and values. But do the movies influence our ever-changing sensibilities, or do we? In advance of our Pride Film week, film expert Frank Mandosa will be discussing the ways in which the evolution of LGBTQ+ representation in Hollywood films reflects attitudes, both past and present, towards the LGBTQ+ community.
Behind-the-scenes information, discussions about groundbreaking actors, and film clips and trailers all combine to bring you a fascinating, informative and enlightening look at the movie industry's past and present history on the subject.
We have lots of Pride films this month! Our main Pride film series is taking place every day at 2:30 pm from June 17th-21st. We are also partnering with the Human Rights Commission to screen an additional film, "The Celluloid Closet", June 17th at 6:30 pm. See our calendar for titles.
