Pink in the Picture on Media Portrayal of Homosexuals

by our Editors in Media & entertainment , 29 maart 2014

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

Roze in Beeld (Pink in the Picture) is a new media literacy project that aims to decrease LGBT stereotypes and discrimination, and make the change in the portrayal in the media of this group visible. On its website and Facebook page it becomes clear that it is also developing educational material on the subject.

Two men marrying in the Dutch soap GTST! Presenter/singer Paul de Leeuw is gay, and comedian Claudia de Breij is lesbian. They are very open about it, and so are many other Dutch celebrities. But fifty years ago, it was difficult to appear on television or talk about it. A lot has changed.

Roze in Beeld is about that change in history, and wants to make this difference in media portrayal of LGBTs (in film and on TV) visible. The website has a time line with many clips, which reveals that LGBTs were practically invisible in film and television in the 1960s, whereas now, LGBTs are seen regularly. Both in entertainment (GTST) and in informational programmes, such as Hij is een Zij (He is a She).

In particular for secondary school pupils, Roze in Beeld developed educational material for lessons in Sexual Diversity and Media Literacy. Teachers and pupils will start working with material for the subjects Social Studies, Dutch, German, and Cultural and Artistic Education/Film.

Included in the material is the short film Uitgesproken, as well as making-of clips and unedited material of the short film. With this material, pupils have the possibility to do their own takes and make a montage.
