Hey, guys! Azure here, back with more thinly-veiled queer liberationist propaganda. So, media analysis! We've all done it. We've all been to a high school English class, after all. Qualitative media analysis is something that can be categorized into all sorts of different subgroups. For example, feminist media analysis is a popular one, and it considers how gender norms and the patriarchy guide the characters, their actions, and so on. But what if I told you... It could be gay? Queer media analysis!! Analyzing media for queerness, queer themes or a queer narrative. That's right, this sorta thing isn't just for your everyday fandom shipper. There are legitimate scholarly articles analyzing classic literary works to figure out if a character or two may be some flavor of queer. It's a real and respectable thing! But how does one go about queer media analysis, you may ask? How exactly does one go searching for queer themes in media? What even is a queer theme, anyway? Well, I hope that this guide may be able to help YOU to analyze your favorite pieces of media to see if there's some sort of queer theming to be observed.
