The world may feel like it’s falling apart for LGBTQ+ people. Find solace, inspiration, and laughs in this multimedia lecture that brings you directly into the lives of our LGBTQ+ ancestors. Delve into the community of thriving queers in silver screen Hollywood who were conquering the world from inside and out of the closet. By the end you’ll feel like you have a new tribe of mentors.


After Party (Optional)
Party like it’s 1932! It’s pre-Code Hollywood. There are no rules and everyone is fabulous. Lauren and her team will create a social event inspired from the period. We’ll provide photo opportunities, the costumes, the games, the ambiance, and the music. You bring the crowd. Memories will be made that will outlast the test of time.

What People are Saying:

“I learned to live our truth and to be confident and not let anyone take that away. To be unapologetic all yourself.”
– Olivia R.


“This workshop takes you back to the golden age of Hollywood and introduces you to all the fab queer ladies (and pretty awesome allies) that were lurking there. Through the various quotes from the previously mentioned ladies, we discuss how to incorporate their life lessons and strong points into our modern activism.”
– Lauren B


“Very engaging and exciting! Really made you think about the issues at your school and how to fix them to make a more accepting and open environment! She was fantastic, she really knew her stuff.”
– Lilah Q.


“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.”
– Ivey O.


“I took away a sense of self-pride from this workshop, and the idea that sometime you have to be uncompromising to be your own–and your community’s–best advocate.”
– Alex K.
