A hint of queerby ileluska-1 | created - 07 Sep 2012 | updated - 09 Apr 2014 | Public
There are a lot of out and proud trans and queer stories out there- thanks God! However, this list is just a "dash different".
List criteria ( so far): 1)The approach to LGBTQ issues is more subtle, sometimes blatantly crypto-queer 2) The sexual orientation and/or gender identity of characters is just another layer of the story, not its central focus 3) The characters or/and themes are, or are portrayed in a "queer" maner. "queer" as in outside of straight/cis societal norms, not necessarily "sexual orientation" or "binary gender identity" 4) The actors, producers or writers themselves are/might have been queer, and this is somehow reflected in the final product.
