Queer Television in Australia: Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals on the Small Screen from 1970 to 2000.
‘The project examines the rise and fall of LGB representation on prime time Australian television from 1970 onwards in order to understand how key shifts in the politics of Australian cultural life come to influence Australian television broadcasting.’
