Cultures identity formation and behavioral choices made

0 Comment

Cultures often point to television genre or narrative as a strong influence on sexual identity formation and behavioral choices made by teens, particularly as they grow into emerging adulthood (Davis 2004; Kielwasser and Wolf 1992; Meyer 2003). While the male queer characters represented in Glee are being subjects for textual analysis, it would be interesting to see how audiences make sense of Glee’s representations of queer sexuality and how do these representations impact their own sexual identity (Meyer & Wood, 2013)? In conclusion while Glee’s depiction of queer male sexuality is a step forward, there are still miles to go.And with the show coming to an end next year, who knows when the next time a show with its influence and depiction of a wide range of queer sexualities ever be on television.Bibliography Wolfenden, K.
