The Future of Queer Media

The Future of Queer Media:

makingqueerhistory:

With this final article in our series on queer representation in media, we will look at where we want to see queer media go in the next decade, wrapping up our queer media series. Researching this final leg of the series was difficult, as it’s hard to research the future, but we did our best. We interviewed the main team of a project in production, and the Executive Director of Represent, all of whom gave us insight into the present state of queer media, and using our research into the patterns of our past we can get a glimpse of what the future holds.

“As LGBT Africans, we feel the vestiges of the long European colonial presence in our continent. We feel them when other – Western, European, ‘international’ – LGBT organizations speak on our behalf and we are left unheard. Only Africans can speak for Africans.”
