A Queer Romance

(1995)
Lesbians, Gay Men And Popular Culture
A non fiction book by

 
 
It's here and it's queer -- popular culture inhabits all our lives, whether it comes in the form of movies or magazines, TV or shopping. A Queer Romance brings together critics, writers and artists to debate the possibilities of popular culture for lesbians and gay men.

In this profusely illustrated and challenging collection, the contributors variously revisit debates about the gaze to provide a new theory of Queer viewing; discuss texts coded as queer -- from lesbian vampires to Hollywood's use of gay codes in mainstream films such as Top Gun and Black Widow; consider the sexual and cultural narratives at play in the world of home shopping catalogs in Gregg Woods' essay "We're Here, We're Queer, and We're Not Going Catalog Shopping"; explore the pleasures and perils of gay cultural production, from the radically queer film-maiking of Monika Treut to the wild world of homocore fanzines, and address the possibilities of texts claiming to be for the gay spectator -- from pornography "by women, for women and about women" to "Out" TV.

Contributors: Paul Burston, Steven Drukman, Carloine Evans, Lorraie Gamman, Tanya Krzywinska, Bruce LaBruce, Colin Richardson, Anne Marie Smith, Cherry Smyth, Monika Treut, Gregg Woods
