A comprehensive study of homosexuality on television from the 1950s to 2002. Through an analysis of over 300 television episodes, made-for-TV movies, and mini-series, this fascinating account of the evolution of the portrayal of gay men and lesbians offers an in-depth look at how four major television genres--medical series, police/ detective shows, drama, and situation comedies--approached the subject of homosexuality. From 1950s talk shows that tackled the "problem" of homosexuality to Ellen DeGeneres's historic coming-out in 1997, it reveals how television's treatment of homosexuality has reflected and reinforced society's ignorance and fear of gay men, lesbians, and transgender people, and celebrates the programs that broke new ground in their sensitive, enlightened approach to homosexuality and gay-related themes and issues, such as homophobia, gay-bashing, and AIDS.--From publisher description.

A half 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 gay men and women 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 Larry 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 first gay bookstore in the country—or the rise of The Advocate from small newsletter to influential national paper, Gross takes the measure of somewhat more ambiguous milestones, like the first lesbian kiss on television or the first gay character in a newspaper comic strip.

Hollywood's depiction of gays and lesbians has almost always been stereotypical, from the extremely effeminate characters portrayed by Franklin Pangborn, Eric Blore and Grady Sutton in the 1930s to the gay characters in To Be or Not to Be (1983) and Torch Song Trilogy (1988). A contrasting depiction--the homicidal homosexual--has been the basis for such popular films as Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977).This comprehensive filmography to homosexual characters in mainstream movies, 1914-1992, includes full cast and credits, production information, reviews, and an analysis of the film with an essay blending critical commentary and a synopsis of each film.
