WGA Panel: Gay Today in Hollywood

Just a heads up about Thursday's panel at the WGA, Gay Today in Hollywood: A Status Report. Unlike some of the others, you don't have to be a member to attend.

Panelists will explore issues such as: Are there more – or less – LGBT projects in the pipeline now than in recent years? Will they be produced more readily for film or TV? Is there still a viable market for gay and lesbian indie films? Is the closet still an issue for LGBT members in Hollywood today?

Moderated by producer J. D. Disalvatore (Shelter), the WGAW-hosted panel is scheduled to include: Academy and Writers Guild Award-winning screenwriter Lance Black (Milk), entertainment publicist Howard Bragman, 15 Minutes PR; Emmy-winning writer Liz Feldman (The Ellen DeGeneres Show); Kevin Goetz, president, Motion Picture Group, OTX Research; film producers Honey Labrador & Christopher Racster (April’s Shower, Save Me), Last Bastion Entertainment; director Arthur Allan Seidelman (The Awakening of Spring); actor Doug Spearman (Noah’s Ark); and agent Sandy Weinberg, Summit Literary & Talent Agency.

WHEN: Thursday 3/19 @ 7:30 PM

WHERE:
Writers Guild of America , West
7000 W. 3rd Street
Los Angeles, CA 90048
