Abstract

LGBTQ Visibility, Media and Sexuality in Ireland, a monograph that charts the uneven process of attaining visibility for LGBTQ people in Irish-produced television over a period of thirty-four years, from 1974 to 2008. Kerrigan studies what he terms the “tug of war” dynamics (4) 'between a varied multitude of social actors and influences from the media, political, religious and LGBTQ activism spheres' which lay behind the mottled evolution of LGBTQ visibility on Irish-produced television.
