Mitch and Cam's gay wedding in the fifth season finale of Modern Family represents an important milestone in media representations of same-sex marriage. Accordingly, this collection of essays seeks to explore a range of representations (whether positive or negative in nature) pertaining to the topic of same-sex marriage in film and television.
Contributions may explore a single film or television offering or several. Any form (comedy, drama, documentary, news, etc.), year of release, and/or country of release is fair game for analysis. Contributors are encouraged to interpret and explore this topic broadly and innovatively.
