Front Cover
Now You See It, Richard Dyer's groundbreaking study of films by and about lesbians and gay men, has been revised for a second edition, and features an introduction by Juliane Pidduck outlining developments in lesbian and gay cinema since 1990.

Each film is examined in detail in relation to both film type and tradition and the sexual subculture in which it was made.
