Sherri Saum and Amber Tamblyn on The Prime Time Closet


On Monday in North Hollywood, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences hosted a night devoted to how the television landscape has advanced (or not advanced, as in some cases) in the 10 years since the book The Prime Time Closet: A History Of Gays and Lesbians On TV was first published. The book, written by Stephen Tropiano, highlighted the landmarks of gay representation on the small screen.

The panel included Sherri Saum (The Fosters), Amber Tamblyn (Two And A Half Men), trans actress Laverne Cox (Orange Is The New Black),  Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal)Andrew Rannells (The New Normal, Girls), Wilson Cruz (My So-Called Life), Sean Hemeon (Husbands) and executives from Bravo and Here TV.

Our sibling site TheBacklot was on the red carpet before the event to talk to the panelists about just how far we have come…and where we still need to go.
