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
”A minority is only thought of as one when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority. A real threat or an imagined one. Therein lies the fear. And if the minority is somehow invisible, then the fear is much greater. That fear is why the minority is persecuted. So, you see there always is a cause. The cause is fear.”
Give me gay action heroes and lesbian super-spies and genderqueer androids and trans werewolves. Give me bisexual pirates and lesbian detectives and queer spaceship captains. Give me pansexual space cowboys and queer elves and lesbian mermaids. I want them all. Because “LGBT” should not be a genre in its own right.
If you haven’t heard about The Switch yet - it’s a magic-realist, transgender comedy. The show follows Su as she loses her job, ends up on the couch of an ex, and starting pulling her life back together. It’s weird, relevant, funny, political, and queer. It stars trans actors in trans roles.
We’re on Kickstarter now. You can help make this show a reality. We want to see this project succeed and flourish. Click here.
