Christmas In Clyde

Posted on 14 December 2022

[“Christmas In Clyde” is the third film of my “5 Queer Holiday Shorts for 2022” post. To read the next review, “Adam and Steve”, click HERE. To read the previous review, “Xmas Eve Eve“, click HERE.] Once again this year, YouTube lead me to another lesbian queer Christmas short film, “Christmas In Clyde”. Alysse Dalessandro, the plus-sized fashion blogger, LGBTQ influencer, writer, designer, and professional speaker behind the blog Ready to Stare, both was the…



City of Trees

Posted on 24 December 2021

[“City of Trees” is the fourth film of my “5 Queer Christmas Films for 2021” post. To read the next review, “Dashing In December”, click HERE. To read the previous review, “The Christmas Setup“, click HERE.] Historically, at least for the films I have reviewed, when one person writes, directs, AND stars in their own film – it doesn’t work. As expected, that is the case with “City of Trees.” However the low rating actually…



How To Fold A Fitted Sheet

Posted on 13 March 2021

I opted to watch and review “How To Fold A Fitted Sheet” because it intrigued me; the synopsis and premise was enticing. We’ve all had to deal with customer service support where we are constantly put on hold, fighting to get something fixed or changed, and more. It is utterly frustrating and feels like we’re pulling out our hair trying to resolve issues. Additionally, it IS challenging to fold a fitted sheet properly (not really,…


Lesbian Films to Watch for Lesbian Visibility Week

Posted on 24 April 2023

It’s Lesbian Visibility Week!!! But wait… what IS Lesbian Visibility Week? The entire week is dedicated to celebrate lesbians, promoting solidarity with all LGBTQ women and non-binary folks in the queer community. Interestingly, it was originally celebrated during July West Hollywood from 1990-92. However in 2020, backed by Diva magazine, the weeklong celebration was moved to coincide with Lesbian Visibility Day, an annual celebratory day in the UK for lesbians on April 26 that itself…


More Queer Comedy Films

Posted on 1 March 2023

Last year I shared five Queer Comedy Films – all FIVE of which are incredible comedies! But it’s time I make a confession… I had quite a difficult time paring down a rather long list of amazing queer comedy films to just five. I simply couldn’t! Somehow I managed to select just ten films. I listed them by IMDb’s rating, and only shared the first five in last year’s post. And now it’s time to…



My Love

Posted on 15 February 2021

I got a rather late message from Hillary Esquina about her newest short film, “My Love” – released TODAY! In a special treat for Valentine’s Day, this lesbian short film beautifully captures a couple’s love from their first meeting through to today. While it only lasts just over three minutes, it’s a refreshing message about love & commitment. Interestingly enough, no words are spoken! (Ok – all the dialogue is actually provided in a voiceover)…



Popping The Question

Posted on 11 February 2023

Writer/Director Shawna Khorasani asked me to review her short, “Popping The Question” back in 2021 when it premiered. Unfortunately that was right when I decided to take a break from writing reviews and then suddenly, it’s 2023 – Whoops! Now that I’m getting back to writing reviews regularly, it felt right to give this lesbian short film a watch. Now when both the film’s title and the synopsis alludes to a proposal, we know what’s…


Queer Adult Films

Posted on 1 April 2023

Today we’re venturing into a bit of a grey area… Queer Adult Films. I’m sure with those words alone, you’ve got a certain kind of film in mind. But wait – Michael, are you actually going to review THOSE kinds of films! Nope! While many folks might not see the difference, there actually is a subtle distinction between queer adult films and porn. So what makes a film an “Adult” film instead of just calling…


Queer Adventure Films

Posted on 1 July 2022

This month’s themed films were a mixed bag. I must confess that when I’m seeking for films to include within each month’s theme, I try to focus on the higher rated films – even if I have not yet watched the film. With some genres, this is even harder to narrow down because there are many great queer films; some I actually struggle to find ones that fit. I actually had only seen one film…

Queer RomComs For Valentine’s Day

Posted on 1 February 2021

It’s Valentine’s Day! A day where half the world looks at their partner with love and endearing tenderness – and the other half are still looking for their partner! (OK, add in a cluster of partners who can’t stand to look at their partner… but this post isn’t for them!) For those of you looking for cute Queer or LGBT RomComs to watch with your special someone – or for those of you, like myself,…



Will You Merry Me?

Posted on 22 December 2022

[“Will You Merry Me?” is the fifth film of my “5 Queer Holiday Shorts for 2022” post. To read the previous review, “Adam and Steve“, click HERE.] What a wonderful queer holiday short film! Directed and cowritten by Kevin Walls (along with Donald Cameron), “Will You Merry Me?” is a cute & romantic short that takes the nervous situation of popping the question along with the annoyance of distracting text messages and tosses it all…
