Queer Images : A History of Gay and Lesbian Film in America, Paperback Book

Queer Images : A History of Gay and Lesbian Film in America Paperback

Part of the Genre and Beyond: A Film Studies Series series

Description

Queer Images chronicles representations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer sexualities over one hundred years of American film.

The most up-to-date and comprehensive book of its kind, it explores the ever-changing images of queer characters onscreen as well as the work of queer filmmakers and the cultural histories of queer audiences-from the works of discreetly homosexual filmmakers during Hollywood's Golden Age and classical Hollywood's attempt to purge "sex perversion" from films, to queer exploitation and physique films, cinematic responses to AIDS, and how contemporary Hollywood deals with queer issues.

An essential volume for film buffs and anyone interested in sexuality and culture.
