Stranger Than Zombies: Power, Privilege & Lesbian Subtext in ‘The Walking Dead’

In October 2012, GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) released its 2012-2013 Where Are We on TV report, and found 35 scripted LGBT series regulars on mainstream cable as well as 26 recurring characters.  Lost Girl, Modern Family and True Blood are a few examples of mainstream television shows in the US that feature LGBT characters.

So, one would think that lesbian subtext is passé.

Apparently not on AMC’s The Walking Dead.

  1. Interesting article! And very true. Check out the graphic novels – Andrea and Micheine do a similar dance. Also, you may enjoy Strangers in Paradise by Terry Moore.
