floating lesbians

Here are some LGBT movies I’ve watched !!

Top picks (in alphabetical order)

Big Eden (2000)
Gay artist Henry moves from NYC to small hometown to take care of sick grandfather. A really sweet, heartwarming story. Bonus points for no homophobia (!!) plot line & a gay native american man, Pike, who is adorable and crushes on Henry.

Brokeback Mountain (2005)
Who hasn’t seen this? Two shepherds and their tumultuous love story over the years. 

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999)
Girl gets sent to a boot camp meant to alter her sexuality. Funny and aesthetic and really cheesy but worth the watch.

Carol (2015)
A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol, an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. 

First Girl I Loved (2016)
Girl falls in love with the most popular girl from her school. Bonus points for a nuanced and realistic portrayal of teenagers.

The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho, 2014)
Brazilian coming-of-age drama about a blind boy who falls in love with his classmate. Based on a short film called “I don’t want to go back alone”, which you can find on youtube.

Holding The Man (2015)
In the 1970s, two teen boys in Australia fight all obstacles thrown their way and refuse to renounce the love they feel for each other. Based on Australia’s “most famous gay biography”.

I Killed My Mother (J’ai Tué Ma Mère, 2009) 
Biographical drama. Directorial debut of Quebecois actor Xavier Dolan, which he also wrote, produced and starred in. My favourite film by him.

Kill Your Darlings (2013)
Biographical drama/thriller. A murder in 1944 draws together the great poets of the beat generation. Peep Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan.

Laurence Anyways (2012)
A drama that charts ten years in the relationship of a transgender woman’s relationship with her lover. Directed by Xavier Dolan.

Maurice (1987)
The story of a gay man in the early 20th century. A really sweet film with bonus points for being a gay period drama that - spoilers - has a happy ending.

Moonlight (2016) (see title card)
A chronicle of the childhood, adolescence and burgeoning adulthood of a young black man growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. First lgbt film (and film with all-black cast) to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards 2017.

Pride (2014)
U.K. gay activists work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984. A truly feel-good movie every one should watch.

The Handmaiden (2016)
A woman is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress, but secretly she is involved in a plot to defraud her. It’s been called a “South Korean Gothic Lesbian Revenge Thriller”. Just watch it. Trust me. 

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
A cult-classic and must-watch. Need I say more?

Rest of movies in alphabetical order under cut, with some commentary by yrs truly (me. a gay.)

I never understood why people question lesbian’s sexuality for having different preferences in women (ex. Liking butch means you are bihet/only wanting to give or receive makes u straight etc, NOT when it’s about fetishising abuse or race, that’s another topic) when straights have 1639393619 preferences in the opposite sex with nobody doubting their hetness??

I see even some lesbians doing that, like I get that it’s not your thing and that’s okay? move on? Lol Don’t really understand why some of you need to make a big deal and make assumptions when all it means is whatever floats some lesbians boat dont float yours. I mean.. it’s not that deep. You don’t pull this shit on straight women who like feminine men or like to take the “masculine” role in bed with their male partners so why do that to lesbians? I’m almost on the verge of taking this personally since so many people push this standard only on lesbians lol

I wonder if some people will think back to the Sophiam pictures on the yacht, and reconsider how they can see those as relationship goals, while the same thing with Hendall now is obviously fake as fuck. I'm not holding my breath, though. Anyways; Happy new year, Sasha.

Happy New Year honey!

As for Hendall on a yacht:

I’ve blogged sooooo many times about how recycled stunts point to fakery and how 1D has a habit of doing just that. I suppose they’re effective narrative devices and often promo is tied in, so there’s that. In Harry’s case, I think he was inserted into this setting very much on purpose. I think Team Azoff advised and assisted in arranging it. And I think they helped float the lesbian Kendall story. They’re cooperating and undermining at the same time. Babygate endgame has got next, so Harry has to be far removed from all things Louis in order to sell that narrative on the front end. Of course he doesn’t want to, but until 1DHQ is fully out of the picture, he’s being compelled to. Zayn will probably be brought in to distract from the resolving of babygate on the back end. Although we wish it didn’t have to happen at all, it’s happening.

On its surface, it looks like exactly what the media is selling selling. Harry and his apparently magnetic personality and/or hypnotic dick has yet another former high profile conquest unable to get over him. But we in the fandom know better. Because we pay attention, we can see how staged and shady this is. And the Sophiam yacht extravaganza worked well as far as no homo promo. People ate up all that barely clothed, HQ, PDA. So why not do it again?

Sure looks like they did it again.

It’s officially 2016. Time for the entire fandom to put away their illusions about this band. Stuntin’ has happened with 5/5. It will continue to happen for the time being. It’s ok to admit that. That doesn’t mean you have to hate any of the players. Whether they do it willingly or grudgingly, they’re all still pawns at this point. Hate the game.
