what are your top 5 lesbian movies? tv shows? books?

THIS IS TOUGH. i will try my very best… but i’m not so good with favorites.

1. imagine me & you
2. but i’m a cheerleader
3. if these walls could talk 2
4. saving face
5. desert hearts???
(the list goes on)

tv shows: more difficult because there are not many shows with lesbian protagonists… or …. any. lesbians in television seem to be more tokenized than lesbians in movies because there’s a lot more liberal freedom in a movie than cable networks will allow.
1. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER is a pretty obvious one for me
2. south of nowhere was essentially my bible when coming out
3. orange is the new black (except, fuck you alex)
4. …. my list ends here, actually. i suppose i’ll throw in the L word due to a sense of obligation.

1. rubyfruit jungle by rita mae brown (only on amazon - $0.01)
2. annie on my mind by nancy garden
3. fun home by alison bechdel 
4. chloe plus olivia: an anthology of lesbian literature from the 17th century to the present by lillian faderman ($0.01 on amazon)
5. the price of salt by patricia highsmith??? i hate picking favorites.

p.s. i included links for free access to all of my favorite lesbian media. enjoy!

And Tala’s forthright challenges to Leyla’s beliefs begins a journey of self-awareness for Leyla. 
One of two movies that Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth star in, both made by Shamim Sarif. Both incredible movies that deserves your attention. Go watch it!
