Please join Dr. Kand McQueen on Tuesday, Jan. 29 in HMSU 421 at 7 p.m. Dr. McQueen will facilitate a discussion following the video, "Further Off the Straight and Narrow." "Further Off the Straight and Narrow" is a 61-minute documentary that takes a close look at sitcoms, reality shows, and premium cable programming as it explores how representations of LGBT characters have become more complex and varied in recent years. The film acknowledges the expansion of LGBT representation on television and the resulting possibilities for inclusion and recognition opened up for today's gay youth. However, the program also raises questions about how this queer presence on television is shaped by the imperatives of the commercial media system. Admission Free! Refreshments will be served.
