Digital Queers: LGBTQ Representations in Contemporary Television
This symposium brings together global scholars, activists, and media producers who address contemporary representations of LGBTQ people on television. How have queer images changed in the past ten years? What difference do new distribution channels -- YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime -- make to sexual diversity in shows? How does LGBTQ television content migrate around the globe? And what are the ongoing limits of queer representation?
