A conversation with...

This month IN THE LIFE will take a look back at the best of their ongoing series 'A Conversation With…', featuring provocative discussions among celebrated actors, writers and activists speaking out about LGBT equality and culture. Here's what you can look forward to:
A CONVERSATION WITH… Kathleen Turner and Edward Albee
Kathleen Turner and Edward Albee reflect on his plays, the reviews, inspiration, and what he considers to be the emerging "commercialism" of Broadway theater. "The problem about live theater is it costs so damned much to put on," says Albee "an audience that goes to the theater for escapism is a different audience than one that goes to engage and think about stuff.”

A CONVERSATION WITH… Julian Bond and Jonathan Capehart
Julian Bond, Chairman of the NAACP, a giant in the movement for Black Civil Rights, has been on the frontline for equal rights in America for over four decades. He is also an outspoken advocate for the rights of America's gays and lesbians. Washington Post editorial writer and Pulitzer Prize winner, Jonathan Capehart, explores Bond's national leadership role in these major social issues of our day, recalling those who were formative in his growth as an activist.

A CONVERSATION WITH… Julianne Moore and Christine Vachon
Long-time collaborators, screen actress Julianne Moore and Killer Films co-founder and producer Christine Vachon talk about lesbian representation in film, the state of queer cinema and homophobia in Hollywood.
