FST 281 Mediated Sexualities: Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgendered Persons and the Electronic Media (3) MPF

Examines both the treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons by the mass media and the voices of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons as producers of media messages and as activists who influence media messages. The Kinsey Report, the Stonewall Riots, and the AIDS epidemic serve as major culture milestones for tracing the evolving portrayals of diverse sexualities.
