Using trailers from mainstream movies from the 1960s and 1970s — including Myra Breckinridge, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Children’s Hour and The Killing of Sister George — queer cultural historian Jim Van Buskirk will investigate Hollywood’s depiction of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters.
The talk is designed to spark a lively discussion of understandings of sexuality and gender issues and how they are reflected in — and influenced by — stories and images on the silver screen. Van Buskirk is an author, professional group facilitator and film buff. Among his books is Celluloid San Francisco (Chicago Review Press, 2006).
