Queer Comedy Films

Queer Comedy Films

Last year I reviewed Queer RomComs. Back in February I split the genre in half and gave you five Queer Romances. Now it’s time for the other half: Queer Comedy Films! However like the trouble I had with isolating romances, I had a tricky time determining solely queer comedy films for this month’s post. After all, comedy and romance often go hand in hand together – and for good reason! But I think these five…

Queer Family Films

Queer Family Films

“Family” is a tricky word to define. It can mean different things in different situations, both positive and not-so-positive. When it comes to a family film, that vague depiction remains. Most would associate a “family film” with animation or a film made with young kids in mind – “a film for the entire family.” Yet it can also be a film that focuses on the importance of family to tell its story. Both would be…

Queer Fantasy Films

Queer Fantasy Films

When you hear the word Fantasy, what comes to mind? The most obvious images would be anything magical, extraordinary or even exotic. In fact, IMDb notes that Fantasy films contain numerous scenes that give off the effect of a magical and/or mystical narrative, usually with elements of magic, supernatural events, mythology, and folklore. But it’s NOT Sci-Fi (which is more based on science and the advancement of science towards a potential future). So when paring…

Queer Romance Films

Queer Romance Films

While most of my monthly themes are random and don’t always connect to anything specific, this month’s actually does – Queer Romance Films for Valentine’s Day. Yes, it’s utterly cheesy – forgive me! But after last year’s success with 5 Queer RomCom’s For Valentine’s Day, I just HAD to keep up the theme. Besides, there’s nothing wrong with with great romances. I have a second confession though – it was NOT easy to pick this…

Queer Sci-Fi Films

Queer Sci-Fi Films

When one thinks of great Sci-Fi films, you usually don’t think of any famous queer ones. But amidst the science fiction genre of other alien worlds, artificial intelligence, and more – there are a couple queer sci-fi films! But are they any good? That’s the question, given that many films within the sci-fi genre are B-grade or lower budget films. Of the select few I could find that had a strong queer element, these are…

Trans Films For Transgender Awareness Week

Trans Films For Transgender Awareness Week

Historically in mainstream media, trans folks are added purely for comedy. However, it’s usually at the expense of being trans so it’s not actually funny and rather demeaning. Or, like others in the queer community, trans persons are used as the “victims” – especially in crime dramas where the cliche storyline is the trans person was killed after their john realised “she” is actually a “he”. Perhaps worse, they films aren’t actually trans films, just…
