Abstract

There are many LGBT cultures in today’s social media, such as BL novels, BL film and television dramas, and CP culture. The LGBT culture originally belonging to specific groups has affected the contemporary overall culture to a certain extent. This paper attempts to answer the impact of the wide spread of LGBT culture on LGBT groups, mainly from three perspectives: society, media and entertainment. This research mainly adopts qualitative research methods, through interviews with LGBT groups and heterosexual groups, to jointly understand the deep reasons for the wide spread and popularity of LGBT culture. This paper finds that the impact of LGBT culture on LGBT groups is actually less than our expected. However, the wide spread of LGBT culture will inevitably affect young people. For heterosexual groups, the popularity of LGBT culture may not break the public’s stereotype of LGBT, but add interesting and fashionable labels to the impression of LGBT, so as to form a new stereotype. Therefore, there is no doubt that social media provides space for the popularity of LGBT culture, so that more people pay attention to and accept this group. At the same time, LGBT groups will face new challenges. Although there are some limitations in the methods and conclusions, this paper will still be beneficial to further explore the LGBT group research from the perspective of contemporary mass culture.
