I recently came across a really interesting YouTube series (Matt Baume’s Culture Cruise) which analyses the representation of LGBT people in TV shows over the last few decades. Here’s my favourite one so far, based on an episode of Frasier:
The videos area really well made and Matt Baume clearly knows the shows he’s discussing really well, while also having a strong awareness of LGBT history and what was happening when the different shows aired. He speaks about the subject in a fair and considered way – I find him easy and engaging to listen to. Click here if you’d like to see a full playlist. Other episodes I’ve watched spoke about The Simpsons and Quantum Leap – have a look at the playlist as I’m sure you’ll find something you’ve watched on there. They’re such good videos that I just wanted to help them reach as many people as possible!
