Inhalt
Half a century ago gay men and lesbians were all but invisible in the media and, in turn, popular culture. With the lesbian and gay liberation movement came a profoundly new sense of homosexual community and empowerment and the emergence of gay people onto the media’s stage. And yet even as the mass media have been shifting the terms of our public conversation toward a greater acknowledgment of diversity, does the emerging »visibility« of gays and lesbians do justice to the complexity and variety of their experience? Or is gay identity manipulated and contrived by media that are unwilling – and perhaps unable – to fully comprehend and honor it? While positive representations of gays and lesbians are a cautious step in the right direction, media expert Gross argues that the entertainment and news media betray a lingering inability to break free from proscribed limitations in order to embrace the complex reality of gay identity. While noting major advances, like the opening of the Oscar Wilde Memorial Bookstore – the 1st gay bookshop in the U.S. – or the rise of »The Advocate« from small newsletter to influential national paper, Gross takes the measure of somewhat more ambiguous milestones, like the 1st lesbian kiss on TV or the 1st gay character in a newspaper comic strip.
