Abstract

Since about 2004, together with the boom of production of original Czech television series, non-heterosexual characters start to slowly but constantly appear in the series narratives. In my analysis, I have focused on gay characters: how are they, why and how they appear and disappear, how is their non-heterosexuality installed and how it/they develop in the series narrative. Regarding the development of gay male characters, a perceptible change in their depiction can be witnessed: from mostly miserable characters with the coming out as their only dramatic potential for the series narrative, to more complex characters incorporated in the storytelling experiencing love, partnerships or even parenthood – aspects so normal for the series narrative. Beside this rather descriptive layer of my analysis, taking into account Connell’s and Messerschmidt‘s concept of hegemonic masculinity, I pointed out representations of practices that produce masculinity of single (male) characters in the relation to their non-heterosexuality as subordinate, as complicit, and – for more recent characters – even as hegemonic. The production of non-heterosexual characters as hegemonically masculine seems to be “narratively redeemed” by their homonormativity.
