Publisher Description

PHOTO-ILLUSTRATED 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

This celebration of queer visibility on 20th-century American television goes behind the scenes to explore gay and lesbian portrayals and TV's first few baby steps towards bi and trans inclusion.

From Laugh-In to Soap, DynastyAll That Glitters, Ellen, and Will & Grace, and from "deadly dykes" on Police Woman to heroic lesbians on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, see how TV's depiction of LGBT lives changed over time.

Discover how those images came about and how activists fought for better representation. The author built his account from archival materials, a thousand broadcast recordings, and his interviews with scriptwriters, TV executives, and early activists.

This revised edition includes corrections, material cut from the 2000 edition, and more than 90 photographs.
