HBO’s Mrs. Fletcher partners with GLAAD for three-day West Hollywood pop-up exploring sexual liberation and gender identity

HBO’s new limited series Mrs. Fletcher, which premieres on October 27, has partnered with GLAAD for an exclusive three-day pop-up experience in West Hollywood exploring gender identity, sexual liberation, and more. GLAAD is HBO’s charitable partner for the pop-up experience, with part of the funds from the event going towards GLAAD’s ongoing LGBTQ advocacy efforts. 

 

The experience kicked off on Thursday night with an interview between actress, activist, writer, and producer Jen Richards and GLAAD’s Associate Director of Transgender Representation Alex Schmider. Richards stars in Mrs. Fletcher as Margo, a creative writing professor who, like Richards, is a transgender woman. In the interview, Richards spoke to Schmider about the process of joining Mrs. Fletcher, how she helped to shape the character of Margo, and how she continues to use her platform to ensure that writers are more inclusive and accurate in their storytelling.

The pop-up experience, which takes place from October 25-27, includes various LGBTQ-inclusive panels focused on gender identity, sex, sexuality, and sensuality. See more details about the panels and events below. To RSVP for one of the weekend’s inspiring conversations, engaging panels, and additional events, click here.

Starring Kathryn Hahn in the title role, Mrs. Fletcher is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Tom Perrotta. The show is a dual coming-of-age story, exploring the impact of internet porn and social media on the lives of Eve Fletcher, an empty-nest mother, and her college freshman son. The cast also includes Jackson White, Owen Teague, Katie Kershaw, Domenick Lombardozzi, Cameron Boyce, Jen Richards and Casey Wilson.

Mrs. Fletcher premieres on HBO on October 27 at 10:30pm ET.
