‘stars’ chart changes in cultural approaches to gender? What form of masculinity do

an historical analysis?

Queer:
Formerly an insult (and still can be used as such) but was a reclaiming of the term by initally gay men but then other gender activists.

New Queer Cinema is a term first coined by the B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound magazine in 1992 to define and describe a movement in queer-themed independent filmmaking in the early 1990s.

Not the same as gay cinema (although linked) - based on non-hetronormative models, ideas of freedom.
