Hallmark, Lifetime, and the LGBTQ Question

by Mark Segal, November 17, 2019

Like me, I'm sure you're beginning to think about the holidays. The Hallmark Channel and Lifetime are already running holiday romance movies 24/7. This year, not only do they have holiday movies for the Black community, they even have one that has a Jewish storyline. Wonder if they have a Chanukah bush? These new movies are an attempt to be diverse and inclusive.

So, Hallmark and Lifetime, how long are we going to have to wait for that LGBT holiday romance movie? After all, the channels produce at least 32 new movies each for the holiday extravaganza — 64 films between the two of them.

Celebrate Halloween At The Winchester Mystery House

By Chris Narloch

You have until Nov. 2 to enjoy Halloween at the spookiest house in Northern California, San Jose’s Winchester Mystery House, a sprawling four-story Queen Anne Style Victorian mansion that its original owner, Sarah Winchester, reportedly built to appease the ghosts of people killed by Winchester rifles.

The 161-room structure is creepy even in the daylight, but this time of year, the tourist destination by day is turned into a real haunted house, with an after-dark attraction appropriately named “Unhinged” that gives visitors a fully-immersive, multi-sensory Halloween experience like no other.
