    I Am Cuba

    One day, they might tell stories like this about us. If we keep fighting, one day, they will look back and see only the distortions of us and our struggle, only the broad strokes, and they will be so enamored with our victories that they make something as alive and wondrous as this to celebrate us. The story will not be exactly the same. The tourists who steal treasures and callously dismiss the women they use would not be outsiders,…

    BloodSisters: Leather, Dykes, and Sadomasochism

    Not enough films feature dykes talking about fisting.

    There's a special feeling when someone in a film, or the film itself, gives voice to your thoughts or feelings. When those thoughts and feelings come from someone real, someone who was speaking to a camera 25 years ago, it brings a sense of history.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I just want to note how this film's big, transformative kiss is between the main character and a turnip, and it has nothing to do with the central romance. That delighted me.

    The Danish Girl

    To my cisgender friends, I ask that, even if you would not normally do so, you please read this. This film was made for cisgender people, so I feel it important that I write this for cisgender people. I would not normally watch this movie, but it has been a subject of some discussion on this site in a way that has compelled me to watch it in order to discuss it credibly. I do not imagine what I have…
