Frankie Gnekow's curator insight, February 27, 10:59 PM
Dustin Lance Black, a screenwriter and producer, discusses his new 4 part tv series called "When We Rise." In this new series he will seek to educate the public on the 4 decade gay rights movement like never before, and for good reason. For the first time ever, the public will have an easily assessable and interesting show that educates them about the hard fought battle for equality. With the landmark case of Obergefell v Hodges, the LGBT+ community finally obtained the right to marry, moving one step closer to equality. But this case did not make members of the LGBT community equal, and that is what the show will educate on. The history and the battles fought for equality.

Get Ready For A New Film Celebrating Femme Identity Among Gay Men | LGBT Movies, Theatre & FIlm | Scoop.it

A new and necessary film will explore the nature of femme identity among gay men, and the way men who have sex with men are expected to adhere to masculine stereotypes.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Corey Camperchioli is the creator and star of “Femme: The Film,” a fictional story about a gay man navigating New York’s gay community and the challenges of love, friendship and dating in the Big Apple. Camperchioli, who identifies as femme, told The Huffington Post that he sees his film as a direct response to the rigid gender binary he sees reinforced every day by his gay peers.
