LGBT Invisibility and Heteronormativity in ELT Materials



In a newspaper article published in 2012, the writer and journalist Owen Jones concluded his assessment of the evolving legal landscape surrounding homosexuality and changing social attitudes in the UK as follows:

Thanks to the struggle of gay people, the law no longer writes us off as lesser human beings. It’s a tremendous accomplishment that was achieved at great cost. But the struggle for ‘normalisation’ — to be gay without anyone even raising an eyebrow — may have decades to go.

(Jones, 2012)
