Contents The construction of the homosexual as subject according to Michel Foucault -- recent histories of sexuality and their relevance for gay identity -- contemporary cultural analysis of construction of gay identity in representations of AIDS -- the cultural construction of the general public in a national public service announcement health campaign -- the cultural construction of marginal identity in community-based AIDS/HIV education.
Summary "Aids, Communication, and Empowerment examines the cultural construction of gay identity in light of discourse used in messages about AIDS - messages that are often represented as educative, scientific, and informational, but which are in fact politically charged. This analysis allows for a radical reading of contemporary health communication that can ultimately be used to strengthen marginal voices."--Jacket.
