This April ACMI will take a look at the evolving face of queer representation on the small screen in its monthly Live in the Studio television appreciation night.
With gay and lesbian characters popping up on everything from Modern Family and Glee to Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife and even animated hit Archer, queer visibility on the small screen has steadily risen over the past decade.
Join SameSame‘s Travis de Jonk, Cherrie magazine’s Rachel Cook, cultural reviewer Tim Hunter, comedian Catherine Deveny, and author Alasdair Duncan, as they explore the most memorable series, characters and representations to come out of the television closet, and take a peek into what the future may hold for queers on the small screen.
One Thursday each month in ACMI’s television studio, Studio 1, a collection of pop-culture commentators, academics and industry experts and luminaries get together to present a night fits somewhere between analysis and entertainment, allowing audiences to revel in TV past and present.
