Second Tuesday Presents The 25th anniversary celebration of "In The Life"
We invite you to join us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the debut of the Emmy-winning series that shined a continuous light on our community before it was fashionable to do so.
The first and longest-running national gay and lesbian series on American television, “In The Life” served as a primary news and information source for social, political and legal issues facing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, at a time before the mainstream media would.
The show openly celebrated LGBT culture and profiled political and religious leaders, activists, advocates, artists, writers, performers, athletes and non-profit organizations that were making a difference in the lives of the community.
Over the course of 20 seasons, the show’s team of producers, writers and on-camera talent provided ongoing coverage of legal and ideological battles on the national and state levels for equal rights and protection under the law.
Former staff and others sharing their reflections on the historic public television series include: In the Life creator John Scagliotti (director, Before Homosexuals, 2017); former In the Life host/producer Katherine Linton (producer, The Evolution Will Be Televised for Logo); pilot episode director Bob Diamond; executive producers Jac Gares (director, Free Cece!) and Charles Ignacio (producer, The Lady in Question is Charles Busch"); associate producer Desireena Almoradie (director, To Germany, With Love); director of membership and community relations David P. Martin; director of the UCLA Film & Television Archive, Dr. Jan-Christopher Horak; and film director Madeleine Olnek, a member of the live studio audience for In the Life's pilot episode.
