Merit will lead participants in learn some of the history of Hollywood’s portrayal of LGBTQ+ people as monstrous, undesirable, and dangerous in films. After learning the history participants will collaborate with Merit to create a work that defies the stereotypical narratives. They will create an entirely original work after working together on storyboarding, filming, lighting, and editing. To learn more about Merit Thursday, visit
