lgbt movies

Life isn’t like the movies. It isn’t a fairytale with a happy ending. It isn’t a love story that started with a glance across the room. It doesn’t have a hero to defeat the evil in the end. Life isn’t a story. Life is rain and sun in the same hour. Life is feeling alone and misunderstood but still have a smile on your face. Life is faking it until one day you suddenly don’t realize it’s an act anymore. Life isn’t like the movies.

BASICALLY ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING GAY

Pls pls pls come talk to me :)

Trini IS an LGBT character and even though it’s not made a big deal in the film, it’s still part of her character. And it’s most likely gonna be explored more in sequels. Plus none of the rangers had any serious romance stuff in this movie and the people behind the movie confirmed she isn’t straight so it’s not queer baiting. We don’t know if she’s gay or bi, but we know she isn’t straight even if it’s only a small reference. Don’t erase her sexuality just because it wasn’t made so explicit in this first movie of a possible franchise

Okay guys. I’m gonna be real with you for a sec. The Captain Underpants movie is coming out in June, and y'all in the LGBT community and those who support it should totally make sure you watch it!! The movie is based off a 12-book series. In the last book, one of the protagonists, Harold, is revealed to be gay. This is super huge for an elementary series of kids books!!

The movie coming out is based on the first four books (that I’m aware of), and if it does well, Dreamworks will probably finish making the series. It would be so important to have that sort of representation for young LGBT kids seeing this movie!! I’ve rarely seen movies where kids are revealed to be LGBT, and that would be such a huge stepping stone!

Anyway!! This movie looks really fun and exciting on top of having the two protagonists that are minorities (Harold’s best friend George is black, and both boys have AHHD). So support it if you can!!

This is strangely hard to post. I’ve been avoiding sharing this because when I watch it, I see all of the flaws, all of the things I wish I could change. BUT. I’m never done learning, my art will never be perfect, and all I can hope is that what I create connects to someone and translates real emotions. I’m excited to be starting my career with a project that pushed me, that tells an LGBT story, that helped me find my voice as a director. Thank you so much to everyone who has given to this project, shared it with others, and waited for its release! 

THIS is One Night: a lesbian/drama short film, written & directed by me - Lydia Smyth
