9780044409106: Good, the Bad and the Gorgeous: Popular Culture's Romance with Lesbianism

In this collection, 15 writers from Britain, the United States and Australia focus on a wide range of lesbian "moments" in the worlds of film, television, pop music, books, magazines and newspapers. As well as examining media representations of lesbians in the BBC's "Portrait of a Marriage", "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit" and the US series "LA Law", they also explore specifically lesbian readings of Hollywood films such as "The Accused", "Aliens" and "Thelma and Louise". Some pieces examine pop music from a lesbian perspective, both the industry in general and the massive appeal of kd lang and Madonna, while other contributors consider the "crossover" appeal of lesbianism in glossy magazines. The contributors identify points of acceptance of and resistance to lesbianism, and in doing so take a look at the popular pleasures and preoccupations shared by us all.
