Course DescriptionThis course will explore how sexuality, sexual orientation and gender identity have been portrayed in the media, news and entertainment, both historically as well as in contemporary culture. The reasons and the implications for changes in the depiction of the LGBT community will also be explored. Do the media have the power to change public perception or are the changes in news coverage and the entertainment fields merely a reflection of changing cultural and public attitudes? Do these ever conflict, and if so, why?
