“As ideas of public space changed, homosexuals found public streets and parks useful for meeting one another” (Bronski 123).  In order to identify one another as desiring same sex encounters, people relied on exaggerated stereotypes of sexuality and sexual identity.  While this increasingly public image of homosexuality in the 1920’s and 1930’s was liberating for many, it also brought along new dangers from society (125).  As homosexuality became more public, so too did its expression in fictional media.  [Alex]
