Potential Change in Media Discourse on Sexuality in Lebanon

Publisher: Oxford University
Author: Sahar Mandour

Keywords: sexuality, media,
Location in CRTDA: New Publications

The research focused on how the media addressed the Cinema Plaza story in 2012 during which 36 young men were arrested and subjected to exams. According to the researcher, the audio-visual media witnessed a breakthrough in approaching the subject and in covering the story, where such issues had been traditionally dealt with by the media in an anecdotal and burlesque manner. As for the interaction between the written and audio visual media, the researcher noted that the emergence of a right based civil movement started through the written media and was followed by the establishment of a number of partnerships between civil society organisations and some newspapers.
