Is heterosexism, homophobia, or internalized homophobia represented in some way?

Use concepts from queer theory to help you interpret some aspect of Thanksgiving, the episode Master of None viewed in class (you may choose a different movie, television show, song lyric, cartoon, video game, or any other production of popular culture that you find interesting and that seems to lend itself to a lesbian, gay, or queer interpretation, but please run it by me first). For example, do gay or lesbian stereotypes or negative references to LGBTQ individuals appear in this cultural production? Is heterosexism, homophobia, or internalized homophobia represented in some way? If so, what does this production seem to be saying about these values? Based on your observations, what cultural work does your chosen cultural production do relevant to lesbian, gay, or queer theory? Specifically, what definitions of normal masculinity, normal femininity, and normal sexuality does it imply? Be sure to offer evidence from your chosen production to support your ideas.
