Sexuality in India offers an expression of nationalist anxieties and is a significant marker of modernity through which subjectivities are formed among the middle class. This book investigates the everyday experience of queer Indian men on digital spaces. It explores how queer identities are formed in virtual spaces and how the existence of such spaces challenge and critique ‘Indian’-ness. It also looks at the role of class and intimacy within the discourse. This work argues that new media, social networking sites (SNSs), both web and mobile, and related technologies do not exist in isolation; rather they are critically embedded within other social spaces. Similarly, online queer spaces exist parallel to and in conjunction with the larger queer movement in the country. This book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of gender studies, especially men's and masculinity studies, queer and LGBT studies, media and cultural studies, particularly new media and digital culture, sexuality and identity, politics, sociology and social anthropology, and South Asian studies.

This book traces the fascinating history of the first Polish gay and lesbian magazines to explore the globalization of LGBT identities and politics in Central and Eastern Europe during the twilight years of the Cold War. It details the emergence of homosexual movement and charts cross-border flows of cultural products, identity paradigms and activism models in communist Poland. The work demonstrates that Polish homosexual activists were not locked behind the Iron Curtain, but actively participated in the transnational construction of homosexuality. Their magazines were largely influenced by Western magazines: used similar words, discussed similar topics or simply translated Western texts and reproduced Western images. However, the imported ideas were not just copied but selectively adopted as well as strategically and creatively adapted in the Polish magazines so their authors could construct their own unique identities and build their own original politics.

This turn-of-the-century moment - when queer love has become increasingly visible in both popular culture and socio-political realms - provides an ideal occasion for a critical examination of same-sex love stories in the media. Focusing primarily on film and televisual texts from the ten years before and after the millennium, the essays collected in Queer Love in Film and Television ask how recent films and television programs play with, imitate, subvert, mock, critique, and queer the romantic narrative conventions so common in Western culture. The collection follows the trajectory of the conventional romance narrative, from the pursuit of romantic love to the creation of families, and then it pushes further, into marginal regions where conventional narratives fail to venture, and then turns back to consider how that narrative is itself transformed (or queered) through adaptation.

Der Band, hervorgegangen aus einer Tagung des Interdisziplinären Zentrums für Frauen- und Geschlechterstudien (IZFG) an der Universität Greifswald im November 2004, stellt den Zusammenhang zwischen Sex/ismus als soziale, politische und diskursive Praxis und der Verwobenheit der Medien in dieser Praxis zur Diskussion. Printmedien, (Werbe)Fotografie, Fernsehen und Film werden – an ausgewählten Formaten oder konkreten Materialien – in ihrer Vermittler- und Erzeugerrolle von Sex/ismus beschrieben. In den Blick genommen werden alltagsmediale kulturelle Rezeptionsangebote wie Soaps, Doku-Soaps, Spielfilme, Werbeserien, das Feldbusch-Schwarzer-TV-Duell in der Kerner Late-Night-Show sowie Beispiele für Ratgeberliteratur und Hochschuljournalistik. Das analytische Interesse umkreist – in unterschiedlicher Intensität – sexistische Medienpraktiken im soziologischen Verständnis des Sexismus-Begriffs, theoretische Konsequenzen aus dem performative turn für den Sexismus-Begriff und deren analytische und methodische Reichweite im Verbund mit anderen Differenzkategorien, und die medientheoretische Reflexion des Geschlechterperformativs. Die Medien übergreifende Situierung und Befragung sexistischer kultureller Praxen erfordert ein kulturwissenschaftlich ausgerichtetes Fachverständnis – Vertreterinnen der beteiligten Einzeldisziplinen Rechtswissenschaften, Kommunikations- und Medienwissenschaften, Amerikanistik und Germanistik demonstrieren das für ihre eigene Disziplin und gewinnen ganz unterschiedliche Erkenntnisse hinsichtlich aktueller Sexismus-Praktiken in den Medien.

"Language is a fundamental tool for shaping identity and community, including the expression (or repression) of sexual desire. Speaking in Queer Tongues investigates the tensions and adaptations that occur when processes of globalization bring one system of gay or lesbian language into contact with another.Western constructions of gay culture are now circulating widely beyond the boundaries of Western nations due to influences as diverse as Internet communication, global dissemination of entertainment and other media, increased travel and tourism, migration, displacement, and transnational citizenship. The authority claimed by these constructions, and by the linguistic codes embedded in them, is causing them to have a profound impact on public and private expressions of homosexuality in locations as diverse as sub-Saharan Africa, New Zealand, Indonesia and Israel. Examining a wide range of global cultures, Speaking in Queer Tongues presents essays on topics that include old versus new sexual vocabularies, the rhetoric of gay-oriented magazines and news media, verbal and nonverbalized sexual imagery in poetry and popular culture, and the linguistic consequences of the globalized gay rights movement."
