Abstract

Press coverage of British politicians’ sexuality has been marked by homophobic sentiment. In this post Donna Smith shares findings from her research from over three decades of media coverage, charting the way in which the discussion of sexuality has changed to reflect societal attitudes. But she warns that genuine equality will only be achieved when a politicians’ sexuality ceases to become an issue.
