Gays Against Gaga Bibliography
One thing I’ve been hearing from some Gays Against Gaga readers is that they’d like some suggestions for books and resources for further study.
This blog would be a waste of time if we were just here to bash on a pop star. We’re not; we’re trying to promote more thoughtful critical discourse about corporate hegemony and how it relates to issues such as music, cultural appropriation, and LGBT rights.
So we’ll be adding to this page gradually, and we invite you to submit your own suggestions for books, resources, documentaries, etc for further study and exploration.
