Minorities and the Media

Amos Lassen

Kevin Barnhurst has gathered some of the major voices in the field of queer media studies for his book on the assessment of minorities and the media. Here four topics are looked at: history, popularity, expertise and technology. They look at gay life from pre-Stonewall to television to the internet and from aspects of marketing, activism and the sexual professions.
We get a presentation about queer thought by queer thinkers who had no formal backing and were still able to exert influence on the media. They are the ones who made it possible for the GLBT community to advance in the media field. The book in essence is about how queer academics think about community based rebellion and what happens afterwards. We see how GLBT people use and are used by the media. Our visibility has become a wanted commodity now.
This is an important book us and it says a great deal. It is both scholarly and readable at the same tine.
