(p.64) 3. Icons
Spanish Queer Cinema

Chris Perriam

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter links the growing awareness of Spanish queer cultures as seen in films and filmmaking to the emergence of iconic figures of different sorts. It engages in some brief, close readings of actors on cinema (and television) screens, of personalities in the pages of the networked social media and of glossy magazines, and of the image of directors themselves. These include Ventura Pons and Pedro Almodóvar, while the actors include well- and lesser-known names. The chapter maps the different ways in with Spanish LGBTQ film-watchers identify -- or not -- with the iconic images presented to them.
