Why 2017 was a game-changing year for LGBT cinema

Why 2017 was a game-changing year for LGBT cinema | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

While a few high-profile films have broken the mould of the type-cast or side-lined LGBT character in recent decades, such as Ang Lee’s 2005 Brokeback Mountain or Todd Haynes’s 2015 Carol, equality of LGBT representation in cinema still seems some way off: a US study on the top 100 films of 2016 showed only 1.1 per cent of speaking characters were gay, lesbian or bisexual, no speaking character was identified as transgender, and only one film featured a gay protagonist. That film was Moonlight.

Netflix Reveals the New Queer Eye Fab Five

Netflix Reveals the New Queer Eye Fab Five | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

After announcing a revival of Bravo’s beloved makeover series Queer Eye (originally with the suffix for the Straight Guy), Netflix revealed today the the series’ new Fab Five. The new cast members are Bobby Berk, focusing on design; Karamo Brown, whose focus is on culture; Antoni Porowski, specializing in food and wine; Jonathan Van Ness, focusing on the all-important grooming; and Tan France, who will make sure subjects are dressed to the nines with his specialization in fashion. Netflix announced that the eight-episode series will debut in February, will be set in and around Atlanta, Georgia — rather than the original show’s setting of New York. “Our new Fab Five will forge relationships with men and women from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from LGBTQ rights and social commentary to how to make the best farm-to-table guacamole and more!” America will be made fabulous again, one artisanal guacamole at a time.

Avant-garde music artists Umlilo and Whyt Lyon (from Stash Crew) have joined forces to break this cultural erasure and inject it with their catchy, homo-erotic dance track – “DL Boi”. The duo have elicited the help of some of Joburg’s fiercest queer talent to create a dance music video extravaganza.
