Striking a "Pose" for '80s ball culture

(Starts at 9:15)

The new FX series explores the glamorous house ball scene in 1980s New York City. The "houses" are self-selected families made up of ostracized LGBTQ youth, and led, for the most part, by trans-women known as "house mothers."  The show features more transgender actors in series regular roles than any scripted series in television history.

Guest: Steven Canals, series co-creator

Guest: James Crawford, board chairman, Pasadena Museum of California Art
