MK305: The Minority Korner Ball (History of Ball Culture, History of Nickelodeon, HBO’s Legendary, Genera+ion, Queer Characters in Cartoons, Blue’s Clues Pride Song, Laverne Cox)
Pride month is here, Avi (they/them) is here to snatch crowns and take names! HBO’s Genera+ion has rocked our world with authentic queer youth televsion, and Avi has the inside scoop through their connection to the series and how this groundbreaking work was created. The Hulu documentary The Orange Years about the history of Nickelodeon has us feeling all the nostalgia feels. The Italian film market has a giant mis-step and blatant transphobia in their casting for the dubbed voice of Laverne Cox’s character in Promising Young Woman. Then James is serving us history realness with his deep dive into the history of Ball Culture - which dates back further than you might think, it’s significance in the queer community, and influence on music, fashion, and mainstream. Avi the evergrowing voiceover actor has some great revelations about the growing presence of queer characters in animation.
