Description - Entertaining Lesbians by Martha Gever
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? Original and provocative, Entertaining Lesbians takes a groundbreaking look at the peril and promise of being not just out of the closet, but out in the public eye.
