The Cost Of Representation

The focus of this project is to analyze stereotypes within mainstream queer films. Mainstream films often portray stereotypes which raise the question of whether or not representation at any cost is beneficial to a specific community. Common themes and stereotypes used in these films will be discussed along with how they affect the queer community. Lisa Cholodenko’s 2010 film, “The Kids are Alright” brings light to some of these themes, such as bisexual-erasure. The cost of representation will be brought into question while weighing the pros and cons of queer representation in the mainstream.
