One of our favorite forms of critique is through comedy -- and this parody video does a perfect job of it. Recently the lesbian
We love when the bear community gets visibility, and now you can help this group of hairy queer men fund their latest cinematic
Desiree Akhavan's first feature film, Appropriate Behavior, written and directed by and starring Akhavan, is generating major buzz. Akhavan was kind enough to make time to sit down with me on the day of her premiere at Lincoln Center. It's safe to say I don't think I've ever laughed this much during an interview.
Traveling to Lewisburg, a town of 3,800 in the Alleghany Mountains, for the Appalachian Queer Film Festival isn't exactly a typical day in West Virginia. Those words combined in the festival's title elicit a similar reaction every time: "Queer? Well, what is queer?" more than a few locals asked.
Have you ever wanted to give your child the gift of the infamous 1980's film "Cruising" in the form of an interactive toy
A hotly anticipated new film that aims to tell the story of the historic 1969 Stonewall Riots just added a number of familiar
The 7-minute lesbian sex scene in the new film "Blue Is the Warmest Color" has a lot of people talking. It also has a lot of lesbians outraged by the film's portrayal of lesbian sex. Sapphic experts weigh in on HuffPost Live.
Under no circumstances will I call Blue Is the Warmest Color a "lesbian" film. Does that matter? I think so, particularly since the film has generated stories of on-set sadism that smack of over a century of movies made by men well-schooled in the cruel manipulation of women.
For a film so strongly about the way that lesbians have sex, a movie produced only by straight people will have a harder time representing that. It would be like making a movie about France if you've never stepped foot in the country. Queer artists are too often shut out of their own stories.
Nearly 20 years after her groundbreaking queer film Go Fish first galvanized audiences at the Sundance Film Festival, Rose Troche has produced the powerfully erotic Concussion, the debut feature of Stacie Passon, who both wrote and directed it.
After a screening of my new film, Five Dances, at Philadelphia's QFest, a gay college student approached and asked if I'd be willing to give him some career advice over a cup of coffee. He wanted to know: Had being labeled a "gay filmmaker" hurt or helped my career?
Established in 2007 by The Festivals Company, the Iris Prize is judged annually by an international panel of artists and
I embrace a title such as this because "Hell Yeah! I am a gay filmmaker who is going to tell my stories about my life." Our community has been denied this freedom for far, far too long.
Take Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey, add the storyline between “Lynn” and “Finn” from the CW’s Girlfriends (currently off
I stopped being an LGBT activist not because my beliefs changed, but for the same reason that someone who's worked at an ice cream parlor for years eventually can't stomach another scoop. So it was with some surprise that I found myself on the board of the Don Thompson Film Festival.
The wealth of movies exploring LGBT experiences is especially rich at this year's Sundance Film Festival, which kicks off today with a diverse, star-dusted lineup of queer movies. Here, festival director John Cooper, a gay father, offers his take on this year's achievements in queer cinema.
I had a fabulous time covering the Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF), where I had candid conversations with celebrities and filmmakers being honored this year.
