Getting LGBT Content Out There

It wasn’t that long ago that gay and lesbian content was no where to be found in mainstream media. There might have been the odd illusion or whispered comment, but you certainly wouldn’t have seen a movie like Brokeback Mountain in the theatres a few decades ago. Despite the fact that there are many LGBT filmmakers, its been a long, hard struggle to get  stories about the community to the masses.

More and more we’re watching the walls come down, though. Gay and lesbian characters are emerging not only in film, but on many great TV shows – like Out There judge Adamo Ruggiero‘s characrer, Marco, on Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Let’s hope this insurgence of great LGBT film and TV continue. I can’t wait to see what emerges from the Out There contest on superu.ca.
