PBS Series “In The Life” Explores The Nature of Hate
May 3, 2010
"In The Life" -- the long running LGBT series on PBS -- works to chronicle the individual stories within the LGBT community to expose social injustice and advance equality within and beyond our communities. For 16 years, "In The Life" has combated stereotypes by offering new perspectives on LGBT people around the globe. For April, "In The Life" explored hate crimes in an episode titled The Nature of Hate. The episode discusses the damaging effect of hate crimes through discussions with victims and perpetrators. April’s episode also profiles the work of Photographer Alix Smith, a New York based artist whose work attempts to break down outdated perceptions of LGBT families through conventional portraits. Alix’s photographs use the style of traditional portraits to visually document the history of LGBT people. To view this or previous episodes, visit the In The Life Media website.
