The Gay Word: Gay's The Word

Amy Ashenden's documentary, The Gay Word, is now on YouTube.

Made on her student overdraft, it's actually rather good - and, no, she doesn't just ask some students what they think about the word 'gay'.

It's hard not to conclude that most usage of the word 'gay' by young people has no conscious connection to the people gay, and it certainly doesn't mean they are being homophobic.

Saying 'That's so gay!' is as divorced from homosexuality as saying 'Oh bugger!' was a few generations ago.

Amy writes about the film for Guardian Students here.
