    LawSoc Presents: The LGBTQ+ Media Debate

    • 16 Oct 2018 to 16 Oct 2018
    • UCD Student Centre,FitzGerald Chamber

    Event Description

    Media casting of minority groups has always been a hot topic, from the 2015 'Oscars So White' controversy, to major Hollywood studio's still attracting backlash over casting decisions today, choosing the correct actor for a role can often be a contentious issue. With a population more involved with mass media than ever before, the content of that media has become increasingly important, and how certain groups are portrayed can have major real-world ramifications. Come down to the Chamber on Tuesday after 6 where LawSoc and LGBTQ+ soc will debate whether the casting and portrayal of LGBTQ+ people today is a positive thing, or something to be regretted. As ever, free pizzas and slushies will be there afterwards!
