Camp Buffy

I chose this video because I was describing the idea of “campy” to friends and their first response was, “Oh, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer?” and I was reminded of the quote from Dyer’s article, when straights take over camp, “it looses… its identification with the gay experience, its distance from the straight sexual world-view” (60). Buffy is over-the-top campy in the traditional sense, but not necessarily or completely in an only-read-from-non-dominant/privileged-points-of-view-way.
