Interpreting the past provides several epistemological challenges including us imposing upon ancient artifacts and remains or old photos our own biases. Our cultural background often informs us about the way we interpret things. Tommy and Buzz may be friends, work partners, war buddies, cousins or lovers at one point.

Again, it is important to be reminded that biological sex, gender, and the choice of sexual partner (sexual orientation and attraction) are not interchangeable terms. People are conditioned by culture to perform a gender role (i.e., man/woman, masculine/feminine), and people generally engage in sexual intercourse with: someone of the opposite sex (heterosexuality or “straight”), the same sex (homosexuality or “gay”), both sexes (bisexuality), or no one at all (asexuality). How these relationships and identities are visual represented or symbolically construed is culturally determined. Culture changes and evolves over time; therefore, one could argue that what is considered masculine and feminine or what represents same sex attraction and unions or attraction and unions of people of the opposite sex is time dependent as well. How do you think gender and human sexuality is represented in our culture today?

Hal Fischer is an artist and museum professional who employed semiotics and anthropological studies in how cultures symbolically represent themselves in his photographic study entitled, Gay Semiotics (https://www.gaysemiotics.com/gay-semiotics (Links to an external site.)). In his study, he investigated how men signaled they were gay within the broader general public during the 1970’s and how they signaled their sexual preferences to other gay men. You can check out and interview Fischer gave to Aperture magazine discussing this project by visiting the following link: https://aperture.org/editorial/gay-semiotics-revisited/ (Links to an external site.)). In answering the question, how do you think gender and human sexuality is represented in our culture, consider this within the context of language (both in terms visual language and interpersonal human communication) and material culture.

Technology has changed many of the ways in which we may communicate our gender and human sexuality to other. Take for example Kyle Fisher’s study in how Grindr has changed the semiotic sphere since Hal Fischer’s photographic analysis, Grindr: An investigation into how the remediation of gay ‘hook up’ culture is converging homosexual digital spaces and heterosexual physical spaces (Grindr – An investigation into how the remediation of gay ‘hook up’ culture is converging homosexual digital spaces and heterosexual physical spaces.pdf Download Grindr – An investigation into how the remediation of gay ‘hook up’ culture is converging homosexual digital spaces and heterosexual physical spaces.pdf). While both these studies particularly look at gay culture, consider how what they have revealed may be applied more broadly to human sexuality and gender generally as it applies to sexual or gender identity.
