About this event:
In celebration of National Coming Out Day please join us in this entertaining and thought provoking 45-minute PowerPoint presentation that uses images and film clips to look at the way the LGBT community has been represented on the screen from the dawn of cinema to the present day. The presentation looks at how these representations have evolved, from fey comedians and school girl crushes to pathological killers to tragic heroes and heroines to fully rounded characters.
