The Hollywood Museum, LA Pride and Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, present the seventh annual “Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBT’s in Hollywood” exhibit, which runs from June 10 to Oct. 31.
“Real to Reel,” a retrospective of LGBT images in film, TV and new digital platforms, coincides with the annual Christopher Street West Pride activities and offers a historic perspective spanning 100 years, from silent films to today’s entertainment platforms.
The exhibit features costumes, props, photos and iconic imagery, all telling the story of the milestones and influence that LGBT characters and plot lines have had in Hollywood from early stereotypes to modern-day representations.
Highlights include costumes and rainbow-inspired personal clothing from today’s hottest stars, from television shows and films such as “The Walking Dead” and “Orange is the New Black” and a costume worn by Rami Malek in his Academy Award-winning role as Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Additionally, “Real to Reel” celebrates LGBT icons – individuals and couples who may be openly LGBT or not, and who support the LGBT community – such as Ellen Degeneres, Cher, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
The exhibit also includes historic LGBT moments with the Rev. Troy Perry, including the Black Cat riots (1967) and the infamous sign that once hung at the entrance of West Hollywood’s Barney’s Beanery.
“The museum welcomes the opportunity to create and showcase this important exhibition, sharing with the public the artistic expression and extraordinary significance of LGBT culture and its effect and impact on the world through the medium of entertainment,” said Donelle Dadigan, founder and president of the Hollywood Museum.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays-Sundays each week. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with ID, and $5 for children under 5.
The Hollywood Museum is located at 1660 N. Highland Ave. For information, visit thehollywoodmuseum.com, or call (323)464-7776.
