Background
In the Life (also known as In the Life Media) was a production company founded in 1992 with the mission of broadcasting LGBT stories in an effort to challenge homophobia and negative perceptions. Airing in 1992 on six Public Broadcasting Stations, the television series In the Life (ITL) was the first nationally broadcast public television series dedicated to advocating visibility and equality for the LGBT community. During its series run from 1992-2012, ITL grew to reach over one hundred stations across the United States, as well as Canada. The television series gained critical acclaim, earning Emmy Award nominations, a Lambda Legal Liberty Award, the NLGJA Seigenthaler Award for excellence in network television, and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding TV Journalism-Newsmagazine.
