Queer Looks by Martha Gever

Book Description

Queer Looks is a collection of writing by video artists, filmmakers, and critics which explores the recent explosion of lesbian and gay independent media culture. A compelling compilation of artists' statements and critical theory, producer interviews and image-text works, this anthology demonstrates the vitality of queer artists under attack and fighting back. Each maker and writer deploys a surprising array of techniques and tactics, negotiating the difficult terrain between street pragmatism and theoretical inquiry, finding voices rich in chutzpah and subtlety. From guerilla Super-8 in Manila to AIDS video activism in New York, Queer Looks zooms in on this very queer place in media culture, revealing a wealth of strategies, a plurality of aesthetics, and an artillary of resistances.

Entertaining Lesbians by Martha Gever Entertaining Lesbians, Hardback (October 2003)

Charting the rise of lesbian celebrity, Martha Gever asks whether such exposure is good for lesbians or hurts their cause. Stars from Ellen DeGeneres to Melissa Etheridge to Chastity Bono send a message that being out is now acceptable, but have they created new stereotypes along the way?

Out There by Martha Gever Out There, Paperback (April 1992)

addresses the question of cultural marginalization - the process through which various groups are excluded from access to and participation in the dominant culture
