While representation of LGBTQIA characters is growing in the pop culture world, there is still a lot of work to be done. Other than a few standouts — Golden Globe winner Transparent, Orange Is the New Black and MTV’s Faking It among them — media is centered around the L, G and B. Moreover, representation of people of color is still sorely lacking in the entertainment landscape. That’s where Missing in the Rainbow is trying to make an impact. This two-hour panel and workshop event organized by Q Youth Foundation aims to explore stereotypical media portrayals and more in a session that will include entertainment pros.

Sat., Jan. 24, 8-10 p.m., 2015
