The Right to Exist: An De-Colonial View of Representations of Marginalized Sexual Identities in the Media


This article is aimed to view queer theory and representations of sexual minorities in the media through an anti-colonial lens. Through secondary research, I critique queer theory for its lack of inclusiveness of subaltern epistemologys of sexuality. Additionally, I take a look at various mainstream and pornographic films that give sexual minorities visibility. Finally I explore pornographic films that subvert to colonial constructs of non-European bodies.
