A humorous commentary on lesbian relationships
in the context of childrens literature.
Taking off from the popular childrens book Go Dog! Go!
(by P.D. Eastman),
this animation paints a sarcastic, pointed and
comic picture of queer life in the 90s.
Familiar pop imagery and everyday signifiers
are a point of entry for a discussion of the patterns
of serial monogamy and lesbian representation.
Go Dyke! Go! plays with the genre of animation
and poses a game of semiotics to deconstruct
the tropes of childrens books and heterosexism.
