Jessica Kellgren-Fozard – The History of Queer Coding

Jessica Kellgren-Fozard tells us about the History of Queer Coding.

Queer coding is the subtextual portrayal of a queer character in the media whose identity is not explicitly confirmed within canon. This concept refers to a character that encapsulates what might be considered “queer traits” that are recognizable to the audience, but are never labeled or claimed by the content creator.
