About this book

Queer Nostalgia in Cinema and Pop Culture is a fascinating study of queer nostalgia in films, animation and music videos as means of empowerment, re-evaluating and recreating lost gay youth, coming to terms with one's sexual otherness and homoerotic desires, and creatively challenging homophobia, chauvinism, ageism and racism.

Reviews

"This is an original, timely, and important intervention in the field of Queer Studies, providing a very convincing argument for the essentially queer nature of nostalgia, nostalgic practices, and nostalgia-inspired cultural production. It is a welcome addition to the body of literature on and around these issues." - Elisabetta Girelli, University of St Andrews, UK

"Padva's work is exciting, interesting and original and will remain an important book in the field" - Rohit K. Dasgupta, The Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities
