Thesis Title
Queering YouTube: Anglophone queer women-made content and Sinophone queer audience

Research Description
Le’s research aims to explore whether and how YouTube’s queer content producers and audience represent and recognise their gender identities and sexualities within narrative content. Proposed methods include content analyses of YouTube content and comments, and interviews with content producers. Key areas of focus include cross-cultural and cross-platform negotiations of queer visibility; and whether and how platform recommender systems impact on producers and audiences as they negotiate representation practices.
