Featuring Richarde Dyer, Larry Gross, Marguerite Moritz, Sasha Torres, Charles Nero, Edward Alwood, Lisa Henderson, & John Erni. How are we to make sense of the transformation in gay representation-- from virtual invisibility before 1970 to the "gay chic" of today? Off the Straight & Narrow is the first in-depth documentary to cast a critical eye over the growth of gay images on TV. Leading media scholars provide the historical and cultural context for exploring the social implications of these new representations.
Off the Straight & Narrow challenges viewers to consider the value and limits of available gay images: who is represented, what they get to say, and how people respond to them. The video is an invaluable tool for all educators interested in introducing students to issues of representation and diversity in the media. "An unusually accessible yet sophisticated educational resource." - Joan M. Garry, Executive Director, GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.)
