Moving image narratives that centre on LGBT+ individuals have grown significantly since 2010 in Western liberal societies. Before then, there were a few notable TV programmes and films that centred on mainly gay and lesbian identities, with some prominent examples including Ellen, Brokeback Mountain (2005) and The L Word. However, LGBT+ narratives since 2010 have proliferated and offer more nuanced visions of what it means to be gay, lesbian, bi or trans in our contemporary era.

This one day course will explore television and cinema in Western liberal societies to look at how “moving image media” more broadly has represented gay, lesbian, bi and trans people over the past decade. We’ll also explore how these representations intersect to create a wider picture of ‘LGBT representation’ in Western moving image media since 2010.
