On DVD: DESERT MIGRATION

On DVD: DESERT MIGRATION | LGBT Movies, Theatre & FIlm | Scoop.it

Daniel F Cardone’s look at an enclave of HIV/AIDS survivors had its world premiere at Frameline last year. It also screened at Visions Du Reél, Cleveland, Palm Springs, Adelaide, Open City, Outfest, NewFest, and at numerous other LGBT fests in Denver, Austin, Atlanta, Seattle, Milwaukee, Madrid, Amsterdam, Boston, and Melbourne, among others.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Cardone’s film focuses on 13 men who have lived with HIV for far longer than they initially expected. Until the emergence of protease inhibitors in the mid-1990s, they, like so many others, believed their HIV+ diagnosis was a death sentence. Having moved to the gay oasis of Palm Springs CA, they escaped their supposed fates and instead face the reality of growing older while coming to grips with the personal losses they suffered from the epidemic, in addition to coping with the side effects of their medication.

BWW Interview: Martha Plimpton on Season 2 of THE REAL O'NEALS and the Show's Affect on the Parents of LGBT Youth

BWW Interview: Martha Plimpton on Season 2 of THE REAL O'NEALS and the Show's Affect on the Parents of LGBT Youth | LGBT Movies, Theatre & FIlm | Scoop.it

For Martha Plimpton going to work on The Real O'Neals is her day job - but for the LGBT youth and their parents all over the world, it's more than just entertainment.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

In an era post-Glee which brought gender and sexual identity to the forefront of teen minds each week, The Real O'Neals is unique as it's one of the only shows which airs on a major network during primetime where the protagonist is a teenage boy who happens to be gay. The show is also one of the few that explores, in depth, the relationship between a gay youth and his family. In this week's episode, Kenny hosts a gay Halloween during which his mother, Eileen, sees him kiss a boy for the first time.

Patrick Ness On The Power Of Truth, Stories, And Not Giving Up

Patrick Ness On The Power Of Truth, Stories, And Not Giving Up | LGBT Movies, Theatre & FIlm | Scoop.it
"All of my books, in some way or another, ask 'How do you live after the end of the world?'"..
Matt Skallerud's insight:

The first thing to say is, you are not alone. Sometimes that’s a powerful thing. [After the American election results] I tweeted, almost verbatim to my worried LGBT followers: Know that we’re all still here, and we’re not going anywhere. There are battles ahead, but I’m still fighting. Like Kate McKinnon said on Saturday Night Live, “I’m not giving up and neither should you”. Sometimes that’s the first thing you need to hear.

March, rally, write letters, be disobedient, and riot if needed, says Cleve Jones.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

I'm sitting with Cleve Jones, the legendary gay-rights activist, at an outdoor table at Café Flore in San Francisco's fabled Castro district on one of those mythical fall afternoons for which Bay Area residents willfully shiver through the summer. Jones, who has a new memoir and a forthcoming ABC miniseries based on his life, has been through all kinds of hell in his days. And yet, here he is at 62, alive and happy.
