lesbian cinema

  • Sometimes I just want to go to the fucking cinema and see some fucking romcom movies with two women falling in love, or a fucking action movie with a same sex couple in it, and have it be a regular fucking ass blockbuster movie, with fucking mainstream actors in it, and it wouldn’t be all, indi, in its own fucking genre, I need to read fucking subtitles, it took me two fucking weeks to find a working stream of this movie online, typecast queer actors, low budget, everyone fucking dies in the end, story. but a fucking regular budget, happy, fucking cheesy ending where the guy gets the guy, and the girl gets the girl, and they fucking save the day and get to morodor, rescue the prime minister, and find the fucking castle in the sky, and then I finish up my overpriced popcorn at the most popular theatre in my city whilst watching the fucking michael bay, lucasfilm, pixar credits at the end, and we all have a fucking great time at the movies

Hey anon! I’ll be happy to give you some recommendations. I do like me some good lesbian films. I’ll link you to the trailers too, though they don’t always do justice to the movie. The movies vary in genre and style.

My Summer of Love 

Concussion (hot)

Kyss Mig/Kiss Me

Reaching for the Moon (about the relationship between Elizabeth Bishop and the Brazillian architect Lota de Macedo Soares)

Aimee und Jaguar

The Kids Are All Right

Die Bittere Tränen der Petra von Kant/The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (couldn’t find a trailer do I linked to IMDB. Quite absurd film.)

Vicky Cristina Barcelona (not specifically a lesbian film, but it features a love triangle between Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Very sensual film.)

Chloe (maybe not in your definition of ‘good’ but still worth watching, about an affair between Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried)

High Art (kinda depressing though)

Fucking Amal/Show me Love (couldn’t find a decent trailer)

The Hours (painfully beautiful)

La Vie D’Adèle/Blue is the Warmest Color (you already mentioned it but I’m throwing it in anyway. Very very beautiful pure film. Judge the sex scenes for yourself — there’s been lots of talk about that)

Cloudburst (great GREAT road movie about an old lesbian couple. So lovely and sweet and funny)

Desert Hearts (lovely little 80’s movie set in 50’s Nevada - I liked it)

That’s about all I can think of for now! Feel free to share this list for other people who are interested.

The month of November offers the chance to get on board with Probable Robot, a sci-fi comedy about ex-girlfriends who are dealing with relationship fallout in the middle of a body-snatching robot invasion.

If you believe in elevating LGBTQ characters in genre films, if you believe in women in film, if you believe in independent film having the power to prove that audiences want to see original ideas and stories on the screen, please consider supporting this project.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kabensi/probable-robot-an-lgbtq-sci-fi-indie-film-project

The money raised from both fundraisers (this current Kickstarter and our previous Indiegogo campaign) goes directly into the budget of the film, allowing us afford the expenses involved in making this project a reality.

Subtext is great and fun and fandoms have rallied behind it, but let’s create stories where these non-heteronormative relationships are clearly and unmistakably text.

Bayard Rustin was a social activist for many issues such as civil rights, gay rights, and non-violence among other things. Rustin was MLK’s right-hand man and strategized many significant events for the civil rights movement. In fact, without Rustin there would have been NO  March on Washington. 

Why is He being featured and honored on FuckYeahLGBTGQBlackPeople? Because Rustin was gay. While serving as an advisor for MLK, He was practically forced into the closet, because of homophobia within the Civil Rights movement and fear that him being gay would stain the Civil Rights movement. Rustin’s name was erased from many of his accomplishments and contributions by fellow activist and colleagues. 

Rustin has not been erased from history and we will pay homage to him for all that he did.

To learn more about Bayard Rustin, please watch “Brother Outsider” which is currently showing on Netflix
