Friday on Lake Effect

Milwaukee’s Mount Mary University hopes a new housing project will help their student parents graduate. Then, costume designer and drag performer Patrick Holt remembers what first drew him to the art form. We learn about the state’s early gay history from the author of We’ve Been Here All Along. Plus film contributor Dave Luhrssen talks about the World War I epic directed by Sam Mendes, 1917.
