The OutFronts: The New Queer Icons of Television
The OutFronts Presented by IMDb • 55m
Television has recently been blessed with more iconic LGBTQIA+ characters than one festival could possibly cover….but we can still try! In this special panel, Dave Karger sits down with four brilliant queer actors who consistently shine and turn their respective series into appointment television. A vampire familiar/hunter, a non-binary pirate, an 18th-century ghost, and a straight-up superhero – these actors are bringing queer life to characters we could previously only dream of, and they discuss the process of creating them, what might be in stores for their futures, and what doors have been opened to them since taking on the roles.
Featured Talent: Harvey Guillen (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS), Brandon Scott Jones (Ghosts), Javicia Leslie (Batwoman), Vico Ortiz (Our Flag Means Death).
