In conjunction with the exhibition “OUT/LOOK and the Birth of the Queer,” a roundtable of writers, editors, artists and community organizers will discuss the story of OUT/LOOK (published 1988–1992) and the significance of the new exhibition devoted to the magazine at the GLBT History Museum.

Participants are author Jeffrey Escoffier, cofounder and publisher of OUT/LOOK; writer and performer Brian Freeman; artist Maya Manvi, an editor of the new issue of OUT/LOOK published to accompany the exhibition; and writer and curator Dorothy Santos. E.G. Crichton, a founder and art director of OUT/LOOK, will serve as moderator.

The panelists will survey the history of the magazine, present the works created for the exhibition and discuss cultural initiatives sparked by the project. A 10-minute performance by Brian Freeman based on a short play written by project participant Casey Llewellyn will round out the program.
