- Lesbians in Television and Text after the Millennium explores popular contemporary texts featuring lesbian characters, including The L Word, Queer as Folk, Dykes to Watch Out For, and various pornographic videos. Beirne places these works in the context of political and cultural trends of the post-millennial period and compares them to cultural representations of lesbians from the past. Taking up such issues as mainstreaming, feminine lesbians, the male gaze, female masculinity, and sexual practice, this book puts forward provocative readings of texts that have been little explored and offers new insights into the depiction of lesbians in popular culture.
