about this item

This volume explores the deaths of lesbians on film and television shows like The 100 and Warehouse 13. After a review of the literature on the phenomenon of the dead or evil lesbian and its transfer from literature to the screen around the world, they address the role of subtext, such as in Xena: Warrior Princess; the depoliticization of lesbians, the roles of industry professionals, and the limited number of women in key roles; the experiences of lesbians in real life; the importance of out lesbian actors and the advances and limitations in stories told about lesbians, with discussion of Orange is the New Black; how lesbian-focused fandoms organize; and examples of fan fiction that reanimate dead characters, disregard their deaths, or place them in alternative universes as forms of resistance.
