EP46 - Conversion Therapy in Pop Culture: From Will & Grace to Boy Erased

EP46.png

Conversion therapy shows up a lot in pop culture, but how is it shown? As a comedy? As a drama? What time period does the story takes place in? Because depending on what the answers are, these representations can be damaging, sending the message that conversion therapy is the problem of a bygone era.

EP40 - Orange is the New Black

EP40

I have a love/hate relationship with Orange is the New Black. While you could argue that the show has a diverse cast of characters bringing representations to media, it's also easy for those characters to also turn into "token" characters, especially when it comes to Sophia Burset.

You can find the full episode script here.

EP35 -The Two Sides of Roseanne

Let's talk about the two sides of Roseanne: the fictional Roseanne Conner and the real life Roseanne Barr. What do representations of race and gender presentation mean on a show when so closely linked to a woman who sends out racist and transphobic tweets? Can we separate the art from the artist? And should we?
