GLAAD'S 'Studio Responsibility Index' Finds Lack of LGBT Images, Offensive Content in Films Released by Seven Largest Studios
Los Angeles, CA, Tuesday, July 22, 2014 –GLAAD, the nation’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy organization, today released its second annual Studio Responsibility Index (SRI), a report that maps the quantity, quality and diversity of images of LGBT people in films released by the seven largest motion picture studios during the 2013 calendar year.
BUA Summer Camp is in session! Audiences went cuckoo for THE BIRDS ATTACK!, flipped their wigs for MOMMIE QUEEREST, and died laughing for L'IMITATION OF LIFE. Jimmy Janowski and a full manifest of Buffalo stage stars embark on POSEIDON: THE UPSIDE DOWN MUSICAL. One of the first and best specimens of the disaster movie genre, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE is archetype in full bloom: huge sets, big budget, a star-studded, award winning ensemble cast, and an over the top premise. As the celebratory clock strikes midnight, the luxury liner SS Poseidon is hit by a 90' high tidal wave and capsizes, forcing the cast of characters to climb from the top, now the bottom, up through the ship to safety. The production promises fabulous special effects and jaw dropping musical production numbers such as Just Panties… (What Else Do I Need?), Keep On Climbing!, Bad Girls Need Love Too and (In The Water) I'm A Very Skinny Lady, sang by Janowski as Mrs. Rosen, the part played in the movie by Shelley Winters
