On today's show:
LGBTQ Artists 'On the Inside'
(Starts at 7:45)
When Tatiana Von Furstenberg was looking for a program that paired people in prison with pen pals, she found Black and Pink, a grassroots advocacy organization for LGBTQ prisoners. Once she started receiving Black and Pink's monthly newsletter, she decided to place an ad in it as a call for art. Over the next few years she received thousands of submissions, many of them self-portraits. A selection of the works are now part of a group exhibition called "On the Inside" at Craft Contemporary in Los Angeles. Von Furstenberg spoke with The Frame about "On the Inside" and how viewers of the exhibition can connect with the artists.
The Future of Movies
(Starts at :45)
Kyle Buchanan covers film and the film industry for the New York Times. He recently asked 24 major figures in Hollywood (including Ava DuVernay, Barry Jenkins and J.J. Abrams) what it will take for movies (and movie theaters) to survive in the next 10 years.
The Soundtrack To Stonewall
Fifty years ago this week, patrons of the Stonewall Bar in New York City staged a six-day uprising against police harassment that galvanized a national movement and transformed “queer fear” into “gay power.” Along with it came some bold new queer music. The Frame’s Paul Ratliff shares the story of the musical voices that were nearly lost to history.
