The Commercial Closet @ Dance Theater Workshop
Monday, September 29, 2003 from 7 -10 p.m.

Classic gay stereotypes like the sissy and leatherman abound in commercials, as well as same-sex smooches -- but how do they sell products? Miller Lite, IKEA, 7Up, Saturn, Budget Rent A Car, DirecTV, Bud Light and countless others have used these themes in commercials for the last 30 years worldwide. The Commercial Closet video presentation is an entertaining and informative way to learn about an area of diversity few consider, and it has been seen by over 100 corporations and universities since 1997.

Join 200 diversity-minded advertising/media executives for our Fall Party to see the popular Commercial Closet video presentation (over 50 commercials!) in the new DTW auditorium, with award-winning actor/playwright David Drake as our emcee, followed by an exclusive reception on DTW's gorgeous 2nd floor outdoor terrace. Bar sponsored by Wyndham Estate wines.

You may win a trip for two to Hawaii, compliments of Orbitz, American Airlines and the AQUA Hotel in Waikiki!
