Queer theory

  1. 1. Like feminism, Queer Theory is apolitical and cultural project: one thatwants to change the world as well asanalyse it.Queer Theory is heavily influenced byJudith Butler’s book GenderTrouble(1990), the title of which givessome indication of the theory’s keyobjective: to break the link between thecategories of ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ so that allforms of sexual identity can be acceptedand celebrated.

  11. 11. You could argue that there is plenty of evidenceof ‘gender trouble’ everywhere in the culturallandscape: gender-bending pop performers andyouth subcultures, advertisements that toy withideas of transgressive sexuality such as sado-masochism, celebrities who acknowledge theirbisexuality and so on.The presence of a gay or lesbian character intelevision or film drama is nolonger, necessarily, a plot device or an exercisein self-evident tokenism.
