I think the most important development has been the depiction of queer characters from the queer characters perspective. It was cool getting to see how the queer characters went from being the evil vampires who were the subjects of heteronormative society, and who always ended up dying to real people with real and valid feelings. The most interesting observation I've made is that even though the way viewers see queer films has changed those characters are still dying and are still "bad". Jack Twist was murdered, Shy from by Hook or by Crook was still a thief, and even the wife in "The Kids are Alright" was still a cheater. The sad thing is that with the whole dying part, that's probably the only reason these stories made it to the big screen is because there is tragedy. I would LOVE to see a queer comedy film. Some of my favorite queer films are those cheesy gay movies that over exaggerate what it means to be queer. "But I'm a Cheerleader" is one of those films and my favorite one that we got to watch because even though it still had it's fair share of problems, for once it didn't end up with anyone dying, and the two girls got to be together.
