Thursday, June 3, 2021

Fills you with love and life This film is a pure celebration of life. Franco Stevens realised that there wasn't a publication proudly supporting the lives of lesbians across the US and she did something about it. In the face of constant setbacks, she knew that a community needed to be created across the country.Some might say that a magazine can't change the world, but when you hear the personal testimony of readers in the film, you can see how much this publication meant to them. It was a powerful reminder of how hostile the environment was 30 years ago, and how far the LGBTQ+ community has come in terms of representation and acceptance.Highly recommended for those in the LGBTQ+/queer community, but more importantly those who want to learn more about the history of the space, and the work that still needs to be done to create an equal world for all.

LOVED it!! I love this film so much! We live in an unincorporated area in the So Cal high desert. I moved down from Oakland, my partner moved down from Valencia Street in SF. We love it here, but miss lesbian culture. Watching this film reminded me of how important it is to connect with others in our lesbian community. I especially loved learning the history of Curve Magazine, which was such important work at a critical time in LGBTQ history, giving visibility and voice to lesbians. The film is fast moving, rich with historical info, and is a great 'human interest' story for all audiences. Much love and many thanks to Franco Stevens for founding Curve Magazine, and gratitude to all who supported the magazine through the years. Thanks also to Jen, Rivkah and the whole film crew for producing this film and documenting this history.

Impactful. Nostaligic. Thoughtful. Those are a few of the adjectives that describe this wonderful walk down memory lane. Curve founder Frances Stevens explores the glossy past of the world's No. 1 selling lesbian magazine as well as what it means to be a lesbian today. Does the community still need Curve? From thoughtful discussions with diverse, multi-generational activists and celebrities, Frances finds her answer. The film is full of fun archival footage as well. Jen Rainin is a masterful director and writer. Oh, and interviews with Melissa Etheridge, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Lea DeLaria, and more. "Ahead of the Curve" is the perfect way to kick off Pride Month. Enjoy!

Queer visibility and representation! I loved learning the story of Franco and how Curve magazine came to be, and appreciate that the film goes beyond this history to highlight BIPOC activists who continue to dream up, organize for, and create towards a more equitable future. This is the kind of queer media that I crave! Most highly recommended.

Inspiring and fun! Ahead of the Curve is about a bold woman who started a wildly impactful lesbian magazine. The film includes wonderful 90s nostalgia and a thoughtful exploration of the future of lesbian visibility. I crave stories like this - women charting their own path and carving out space to make this world more inclusive!
