“Eating Out” – The Entire Banquet

Posted on 6 May 2020

There are many crazy things people do for love, to land that perfect person. Some people write poems and send flowers, others attempt to arrange serendipity, and some even go for loud obvious displays of affection (something quite common in the plots of most teenage focused films!) But “Eating Out” and the subsequent sequels takes those antics to an entirely new dimension – changing one’s sexuality. However, what seems like a great idea inevitably leads…



The Christmas House

[“The Christmas House” is the third film of my “5 Queer Holiday Films for 2022” post. To read the next review, “The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls”, click HERE. To read the previous review, “Happiest Season“, click HERE.] Back in 2020, Hallmark created QUITE a stir after first promising a gay holiday film in their annual Countdown to Christmas lineup, then “forgetting” to include it when the released the lineup – before finally caving…



The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls

[“The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls” is the fourth film of my “5 Queer Holiday Films for 2022” post. To read the next review, “Single All The Way”, click HERE. To read the previous review, “The Christmas House“, click HERE.] After their release of “The Christmas House” in 2020, Hallmark decided to give us a sequel for Christmas 2021.

Christmas In Clyde

[“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…



Dashing In December

Posted on 24 December 2021

[“Dashing in December” is the last film of my “5 Queer Christmas Films for 2021” post. To read the previous review, “City of Trees“, click HERE.] I nearly overlooked “Dashing in December” amid all of the other new queer Christmas films last year. A TV Movie produced by Paramount, it didn’t get much attention. Which is quite unfortunate because it’s a great queer Christmas film! There is some amazing characterisations along with a storyline that…


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…



Made For You

Posted on 25 December 2020

This Queer short film review is part of my “Queer Christmas Shorts for 2020” post. Five years ago, Phil Beastall rocked onto the short scene with “Love is a Gift”, captivating the hearts of thousands at the holiday season. Last year, he stepped up his game and has given us “Made For You”. While it is quite short (only two minutes!), he succinctly captures the heart of Christmas: spending time together with those you love….


More “Kinda” Queer Christmas Films

Posted on 1 November 2022

In 2020, I shared my Christmas post that stirred up a bit of discussion: Christmas Films that are Kinda Queer. Having rewatched most of these films since then, I stand by my decision that all of those films are only KINDA queer Christmas films. But there actually are even MORE films that meet the same criteria! Which is exactly why this year’s post was needed. But first, let me refresh you on what defines a…


More Queer Romance Films

Posted on 1 January 2023

‘Tis the month of love & romance – it’s Valentine’s Day! Time to get bombarded with pink & red hearts, Cupid’s arrows, and outbursts of love. While not everyone is ready to enjoy this commercial holiday, it can be hard to ignore the allure of romcoms or romantic films. (For those of you looking for something different, unfortunately this post isn’t for you). If you’re after some great queer romcoms, you can check out this…


NEW Queer Christmas Films Coming In 2021!

Posted on 2 December 2021

Last year, 2020, was full of a LOT… a year that will not be forgotten for ages to come. But there were some good things – such as all of the Queer Christmas films that broke new ground! Hallmark finally released a film with a gay storyline with The Christmas House, Lifetime progressed from the gay sub-story to a true gay Christmas storyline with “The Christmas Setup”, and we had a few other films that…


NEW Queer Christmas Films for 2022

Posted on 26 November 2022

I’m not a huge fan of analogies, but there’s one that comes to mind while I searched for all of the new queer Christmas films premiering this holiday season. It involves a river, a dam, and climate change. For decades, the unique Christmas film niche greatly lacked any queerness; like a river that was damned, letting a small trickle through with the occasional independent queer Christmas film making its way through. In 2020, the dam…



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…



The Postie

Posted on 21 December 2021

[“The Postie” is the second short of my “7 Queer Christmas Shorts for 2021” post. To read the next review, “He Could’ve Gone Pro”, click HERE. To read the previous review, “A Boy Named Noel“, click HERE.] “The Postie” is actually a cute lesbian Christmas short film! Chock full of those first-crush vibes, paired with the uncertainty and even whimsical comedy of trying to find out if your crush is even a lesbian, this short…

Queer Action Films

Posted on 1 July 2021

When you think of what defines an Action film, certain images or scenes come to mind. Car chases, gun fights, battle scenes, and more. In fact, in order to claim the “Action” genre tag from IMDb, a film must contain “numerous scenes where action is spectacular and usually destructive. Often includes non-stop motion, high energy physical stunts, chases, battles, and destructive crises (floods, explosions, natural disasters, fires, etc.)” Oh, and there has to be more…


Queer Biography Films For Pride Month

Posted on 1 May 2023

It’s nearly June, so you know what that means, right? It’s PRIDE Month!!! Well, for folks living in the US that is! (For those of us queer folk living in the UK, Australia, & here with me in New Zealand, our Pride month was actually back in February.) During June, all LGBTQ & Queer sites will be promoting various Pride-related posts, products, etc – and many larger companies will be hoping on the Queer bandwagon…
