WHAT SCHOOLS ARE SAYING:

 

The program was visually compelling, entertaining, and informative, allowing for brief yet comprehensive look at yesterday’s queer Hollywood. Through performance, engagement, questions, and critique, Ms. LoGuidice helped her audience access empowering tools for current activism, grounded in early-to-mid-20th century queer history.
– Clare M., student

My favorite part was just getting to learn about how these women went through so much to get where they are. I took from the program a since of newly formed inspiration. It really inspired me to embrace who I am.
– Henry F., student

Have you ever wondered what some of American history’s most influential figures would have to say about activism today? This program shows how the lives of strong-willed LGBTQ and allied members of Old Hollywood can teach a lot about impassioned and practical activism to the movers and shakers of today.
– Austin G., student

If anyone ever thinks old Hollywood is just some black and white movies, they are wrong. It is so much more than that, it is women not afraid of being who they truly are.
– Sam J., student

I left thinking about how we all need to be comfortable in our own skin, whether your gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, or bisexual. It also applies to self image and accepting yourself as you are whether overweight or skinny, tall or short.
-Laura P., University of New Hampshire

I learn to live our truth and to be confident and not let anyone take that away. To be unapologetic all yourself.
– Olivia R., student
