Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Sex is part of life. It would be unrealistic to expect the mass media to ignore it. Whether it causes offence or harm to the public depends critically on how it is portrayed, and on how it is used by individuals . Problemdarstellung: Sexualität war noch nie so omnipräsent wie heute erst recht in den Medien. Wenn man die mediale Verbreitung von Sexualität betrachtet, denkt man unverzüglich an Begriffe wie Überflutung, Allgegenwärtigkeit, Sexualisierung oder gar Pornografisierung. Sexuelle Reize sind aus den Massenmedien, die uns täglich allerorten umgeben, nicht mehr wegzudenken: nackte Frauen in der Werbung oder gleich auf dem Titelblatt einer Zeitung, pornografische Webseiten im Internet, der Erotikfilm im Fernsehen. Die Schlussfolgerung dessen: Die öffentliche Sphäre ist sexualisiert. Unsere Gesellschaft scheint im 21. Jahrhundert so aufgeklärt wie nur möglich; von einem Tabu kann bei dem Thema Sexualität scheinbar nicht mehr gesprochen werden. Doch ist dem wirklich so? Und vor allem: Wie sieht es aus, wenn man die Thematik auf Sexualität und Journalismus eingrenzt? Welche Rolle spielt Sexualität in der Berichterstattung der Medien und somit auch als Inhalt und nicht nur als gerne genutzt Form oder als Nachrichtenfaktor, der Aufmerksamkeit beim Rezipienten erzeugen soll? Oberflächliche Reize finden sich in medialen Darstellungen von Sexualität zur Genüge. Doch abgesehen davon stellt sich die Frage: Werden auch pikante Aspekte und strittige Themen zum Inhalt eines Artikels oder Fernsehbeitrags gemacht? Ein solches Beispiel ist ein Artikel des Magazins NEON in der Ausgabe vom Mai 2005. Darin wird über Asexualität berichtet, ein deviantes Sexualverhalten, dem weder in der Öffentlichkeit noch in den Medien viel Beachtung geschenkt wird. Doch gerade diese Berichterstattung kann beim Leser Sensibilität für das Thema schaffen und gleichzeitig Betroffenen helfen, indem auf Internetforen verwiesen und am Ende des Artikels auch eine Linksammlung angeboten wird. Der Autor Rainer Leurs schreibt: Sich als Asexueller in dieser Welt zu bewegen, das muss ein absurdes Gefühl sein: bestürmt von sexy Werbung, sexy Mode, sexy Musikvideos und 'Sex and the City'. Er meint damit: Unsere Welt ist sexualisiert. Die Medien passen sich an und bemühen sich, das Bild der sexualisierten Welt zu reflektieren, aber erzeugen auf der anderen Seite gerade durch ihre Darstellungen erst diese Sexualisierung. Die Frage bleibt also, ob es [...]

PAPERBACK ORIGINAL From an award-winning documentary photographer, the first book of its kind to portray the LGBTQ community in contemporary Poland Few in the Polish LGBTQ community could have foreseen how quickly this deeply conservative and Catholic country would change since it joined the European Union. Back in 2004, gay rights marches were banned in Warsaw and homosexuality was a taboo subject. Since then, as the economy has grown, the LGBTQ community has become more widely accepted. In OUT, award-winning Warsaw-based photographer Maciek Nabrdalik, whose work has been published in Smithsonian, L’Espresso, Stern,Newsweek, and the New York Times, takes us deep into this community. Exploring issues of identity and citizenship and taking its inspiration from the passport photo format, OUT features dozens of formal color portraits of writers, artists, and people working in a variety of occupations from across Poland. Each is accompanied by a short interview and is shaded to indicate how comfortable that person is with revealing their own sexuality publicly. Intimate and profoundly humane, OUT is a testament to the great strides that can be made in the struggle for LGBTQ rights in a short space of time—a document that will be inspiring to other nations where the queer community does not enjoy the same freedoms. OUT was designed by Emerson, Wajdowicz Studios (EWS).

In contemporary France, particularly in the banlieues of Paris, the figure of the young, virile, hypermasculine Muslim looms large. So large, in fact, it often supersedes liberal secular society's understanding of gender and sexuality altogether. Engaging the nexus of race, gender, nation, and sexuality, Sexagon studies the broad politicization of Franco-Arab identity in the context of French culture and its assumptions about appropriate modes of sexual and gender expression, both gay and straight. Surveying representations of young Muslim men and women in literature, film, popular journalism, television, and erotica as well as in psychoanalysis, ethnography, and gay and lesbian activist rhetoric, Mehammed Amadeus Mack reveals the myriad ways in which communities of immigrant origin are continually and consistently scapegoated as already and always outside the boundary of French citizenship regardless of where the individuals within these communities were born. At the same time, through deft readings of--among other things--fashion photography and online hook-up sites, Mack shows how Franco-Arab youth culture is commodified and fetishized to the point of sexual fantasy. Official French culture, as Mack suggests, has judged the integration of Muslim immigrants from North and West Africa--as well as their French descendants--according to their presumed attitudes about gender and sexuality. More precisely, Mack argues, the frustrations consistently expressed by the French establishment in the face of the alleged Muslim refusal to assimilate is not only symptomatic of anxieties regarding changes to a "familiar" France but also indicative of an unacknowledged preoccupation with what Mack identifies as the "virility cultures" of Franco-Arabs, rendering Muslim youth as both sexualized objects and unruly subjects. The perceived volatility of this banlieue virility serves to animate French characterizations of the "difficult" black, Arab, and Muslim boy--and girl--across a variety of sensational newscasts and entertainment media, which are crucially inflamed by the clandestine nature of the banlieues themselves and non-European expressions of virility. Mirroring the secret and underground qualities of "illegal" immigration, Mack shows, Franco-Arab youth increasingly choose to withdraw from official scrutiny of the French Republic and to thwart its desires for universalism and transparency. For their impenetrability, these sealed-off domains of banlieue virility are deemed all the more threatening to the surveillance of mainstream French society and the state apparatus.

Although transgender people are increasingly represented in academic studies and popular culture, they rarely have the opportunity to add their own voices to the conversation. In this remarkable book, Jackson Shultz records the stories of more than thirty Americans who identify as transgender. They range in age from fifteen to seventy-two; come from twenty-five different states and a wide array of racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds; and identify across a vast spectrum of genders and sexualities. Giving voice to a diverse group of individuals, the book raises questions about gender, acceptance, and unconditional love. From historical descriptions of activism to personal stories of discrimination, love, and community, these touching accounts of gender transition shed light on the uncharted territories that lie beyond the gender binary. Despite encounters with familial rejection, drug addiction, and medical malpractice, each account is imbued with optimism and humor, providing a thoughtful look at the daily joys and struggles of transgender life. With an introduction and explanations from the author, this work will appeal to transgender individuals, their significant others, friends, family, and allies; health-care providers, educators, and legal professionals; and anyone questioning their own gender, considering transition, or setting out on their own transition journey.
