Course Description: Television has had a long history in regard to glbt (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered) images. These images and lack of them have had an impact on how society views these minority sexualities/genders. Working from the theoretical perspectives of social learning, cultivation and queer theories this coursed explores how television has portrayed glbt groups since its inception in the early 1940's and the impact these images have had on society from the creation of media advocacy groups to increased acceptance of these minority groups.
