Media Representations of Sexuality

  • The fear of the loss of investors, advertisers and audiences meant the ‘male-gaze’ shunned homosexuality – symbolic annihilation of homosexuality
  • Though society has grown more accepting of homosexuality a study of popular TV programmes found the symbolic annihilation of homosexuality was still evident in 95% of media products
  • But with the rise of the ‘pink-pound’ more and more businesses are waking up to the realisation that the audience is increasingly accepting of gay media celebs such as Alan Carr.
  • However some commentators argue representations of homosexuality are sanitized rather than real, this is because scenes of gay intimacy are rarely portrayed on the media
