    Have you noticed that in popular media the queer community is always portrayed as flaming, upper/upper-middle class, white males? I've got love for all of the gay characters that do get any airtime on television, but the lgbtq community is so much more diverse than that!!

    Thoughts? Well, I, along with a group of dedicated queer students and allies, put together a comedic, webseires on youtube in order to bring more diversity to the portrayal of the queer community in the media, which includes bisexuals, pansexuals, people of color, genderqueers and more. We're 100% not for profit--this project is strictly for the purpose of showcasing more of the queer community in the media. You can check us out at qtheseries[dot]com to see what we've put together.

    I would love to hear more thoughts/opinions on the matter. Am I the only one who thinks the popular media's image of the gay community is limited? Or is this issue apparent to everyone?

    Yes, in fact I've NEVER seen a BLACK homosexual in the media AT ALL. In fact, the first and only gay reality TV show about cross-dressing and looking fierce isn't even hosted by RuPaul!

    You sound like a cunt for making a racist blanket statement regarding gays in the media. Not checking out your website.

    I need medicine because I sarcastically pointed out that there ARE Black queers portrayed in the media? Sounds like you're the segregation police from 1940.

    There was a masculine black character in the abc-family series "Greek", and the series portrayed all their gay characters as masculine. I really love the characters and storyline of the series.
