#FlipTheScript: A Panel Discussion on Rethinking Romance in the Media

Join us to #FlipTheScript & deconstruct romantic comedies at La Casa's February Living Room event!

A lively panel of filmmakers, comedians, and commentators will break down how media glamorizes an unhealthy vision of romance. We will watch clips from popular films & TV shows—ranging from Love Actually to You—and inspect how they normalize unsafe dating behaviors in ways large and small. Our conversation will explore the connection between fictional media narratives and real-life dating violence as our expert panel discusses how we can flip the script on the romantic comedy.

Don't miss this timely conversation, hosted at Manny’s, examining how the public can rethink the unhealthy picture of romance portrayed by the media.

The event will begin at 5:30pm with an interactive activity. The panel will begin at 6:00PM. All ages are invited to attend, and entry is free!

The space is wheelchair accessible, not scent-free, and has gender neutral restrooms. If you have additional questions about accessibility, please email comed@lacasa.org.
