(p.13) 1. Beur Masculinity and Queer Fantasy
French Queer Cinema

Nick Rees-Roberts

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the represents of beur men in French queer cinema. It discusses the acting career of Salim Kechiouche and looks at the two early films by Sébastien Lifshitz to refute the notion that sexual objectification would form some kind of inevitable structure to male cross-race relations. The chapter analyses queer porn video and art cinema, and highlights gender imbalance and the consequential exclusion of male femininity resulting from the disavowal of femininity among beur for cultural and religious reasons.

Keywords:   beur men, French queer cinema, Salim Kechiouche, Sébastien Lifshitz, sexual objectification, queer porn, art cinema, gender imbalance, male femininity
