Digital portal archives PBS' 'In the Life'
Coverage of the 1993 march on Washington and the story of murdered transgender teen Fred Martinez are a couple of the new "In the Life" digital research portal that the UCLA Film and Television Archive has created.
The videos and other resources are publicly accessible online as part of a new LGBT moving-image research area featuring episodes of the Emmy-nominated public-television series In the Life.
The portal's launch, which is part of the Film and Television Archive's 50th anniversary celebration, builds on its previous efforts with the nonprofit Outfest through the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project.
