camp-belvidere

Normally most LGBTQ+ films that I’ve watched (on Netflix/Amazon) are all like opening and re-opening an empty refrigerator, but so far “Princess Cyd” has a great, compelling plot and characters and Ace & Bi representation. (My English Major nerd is also geeking out over all the literature references in “Princess Cyd”)

(*Note to self, skip 57:00-57:13 and 58:30-1:00:00)

So that makes a total of 3 LGBTQ+ films that I would personally rewatch/recommend for various reasons: 1. Camp Belvidere (Astrid Ovalles), 2. Princess Cyd, 3. Room in Rome

  • Steven Universe (have to because SU blog)
  • Legend of Korra
  • Persona 4 (WILL ALWAYS ROOT FOR THE LIBRARY LESBIAN AND HER SENPAI and oh yeah most of the main cast is queer, especially if you count that Yosuke had cut content where he was a love interest and the heavy implications of Chie/Yukiko and the Rise/Naoto shipping done in later works)
  • Sasameki Koto
  • Princeless (and its spinoff of Raven: The Pirate Princess)
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena

  • Undertale
  • A Channel (though no relationship happens afaik)

Camp Belvidere. (Trailer)

Queer review: Camp Belvidere

Camp Belvidere is a lesbian romance set in the 1950s about the coming of age of Camp Leader Rose and her infatuation with Nurse Gin. It depicts the journey and evolution of a friendship into a romance between two women when their rapport would have been unlikely.

Do you have an idea how lonely it have been?

QUEER RATE: nudity, tasteful sex scenes

Astrid Ovalles saying some important things. 

We must support our own. 

Okay, but seriously, go watch Camp Belvidere.

It’s just a sensual, smart, 38 minute movie about a lesbian affair at a camp between an older woman and a younger woman in the 1950′s that is better than half the gay films I’ve seen with a bigger production value.
