LIVE: Pop culture that “made me feel seen”


Overview

Mass media like movies, books, TV shows, and songs have the power to inspire and entertain us. They can also show us new ways of thinking, help us explore our own identities, and showcase underrepresented perspectives.

SRL wants you to share a time when you “felt seen” by something in pop culture or in the media (a movie, book, TV show, song, podcast, comic book, etc.)

What did it do for you? How did you relate to it? Did it feel like it was an accurate depiction? Why was it so good?
