Discussion Queer Café
Jeffrey Alan Vanderziel, Department of english on FF MU Brno
With the advent of AIDS as an issue in films about the GLBT community, how does the “expectation of the death of characters with AIDS” play to or push back against the stereotype of gay and lesbian characters having to die that has been so prevalent in mainstream Western films since the 1950s (e.g. Rebel Without A Cause, The Children’s Hour, to name but two of the most well-known examples)? Films that may be discussed include Philadelphia (USA, 1993), Zero Patience (Canada, 1993) and Angels in America (USA, 2003).
