Whether it’s Modern Family, Glee, The New Normal, animated hit Archer or the ABC’s Outland -representations of queer characters are changing. Our panel will look at queer-focused television and GLBTI characters, examine what has happened over the last ten years and what could possibly happen in the next ten in the ever evolving face of queer television.

Dissecting, highlighting and relishing all things made for TV, Live in the Studio is a regular live event at ACMI bringing pundits from pop-culture, academia and industry experts together. Their critique and conversation sits on the knife edge (or garden fence) between analysis and entertainment. Bring your tissues to mop up tears of laughter (and sometimes sorrow), your thinking caps for new perspectives and shrug off any thoughts of shame about how much you love TV – we’re in the same boat!
