The Transnational Ga(y)ze: Constructing the East European Object of Desire in Gay Film and Pornography after the Fall of the Wall
Abstract

Abstract:

Gay pornography employing men from formerly Communist Eastern Europe, including My Polish Waiter (1994), can be seen as acculturation narratives in which the Eastern European acts as a marker in the construction of American gay identities. These films thus formulate contemporary gay culture at the center of post-Cold War political and economic relations.
