LGBTQ+ Representation in TV: Genera+ion & It’s A Sin

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

Join HBO Max LGBTQ+ creators Russell T Davies (highly-anticipated limited series, “It’s A Sin”) and Zelda and Daniel Barnz (upcoming dramedy, “Genera+ion”) for a moderated fireside chat covering topics including how every generation forges its identity through art; the experiences Russell, Daniel and Zelda have pulled from their own lives to create these two projects with specific viewpoints about attitudes towards sexual identity in the 80s and today; how the LGBTQ+ community is represented in their shows, and why championing more LGTBQ+ representation onscreen and behind-the-camera is still urgent and necessary.
