My abstract is going to center on the shift from queer coding and how its presentation has changed throughout different decades. The queer coding that is generally thought of when the phrase is brought up hails from around the 1950s, in which queer characters were heavily implied to be queer using camp and kitsch elements. Due to the time period, this more than makes sense. However, given how queerness has shifted to the mainstream, one has to wonder if there is a difference. While queerness is more in the public eye, that does not mean prejudice is gone. My project will examine exactly how queer coding functions in current society, how it presents itself, whether or not it is still necessary, and its similarities to the queer coding of decades past.
