Hump Day [Apr. 21st, 2005|12:32 am]
Out of the Closet, Into the Box

I'm only 30 minutes behind!

The most influential GLBT media in your life, if you're GLBT. If not, the on media that you think most showed you what the GLBT community was really about. If the media is something already discussed here try to think of another one.

A thought. [Apr. 20th, 2005|03:27 pm]

I think eventually I would like people to introduce themselves. No pressure. Just a little entry saying who you are and why you're here. And it doesn't even have to be right now, if you're not comfortable with it. It helps, though, to know the people who you are talking to (or talking at, if that's the case) in a group. So I'll start.

I'm Evelyn and I have been long fascinated with the transgender community as well as the GLBT community in general. I'm a straight girl in TN (sometimes lesbian) so it seemed only right to create a community like this. I would one day like to help bridge the gap that exists between the fearful heterosexuals and the loveable members of the GLBT community. Until that day, I've conceded to create an online discussion group to break down some of those fearful stereotypes, and offer venues to find good depictions of homosexuals, bisexuals, and transpeople on the telly, in the cinema, in the theatre, in books, and on the radio.

I vaguely remember writing an introductory entry similar to this, if so just ignore one or the other.

Will & Grace. Opinions?

Stereotyping in a good way?

Stereotyping in a bad way?

Transcending media coverage of the population so it doesn't matter either way?

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert compared with To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Judy Newmar

Two movies featuring dragqueens with abnoxiously long titles. Is one better than the other? Does one depict more reality than the other?

What is your favorite GLBT movie and why? Does it represent the culture truly or not? Does it matter?


(I had a plan of discussing two particular movies but I'll save that for next week.)

First discussion to start on Hump Day (aka Wed) [Mar. 28th, 2005|07:30 pm]
Out of the Closet, Into the Box

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

I wanted to start it today but I was still a little unsure on what entertainment to pick. I was thinking of something most likely everyone has seen/read/heard. I have an idea but want to mull over it a little before actually putting it out there. Aaaand, I want all discussions to start on Hump Day. Just so I can say "Hump Day."



To the ToriAmos advertiser of movie. It looks interesting. If not a bit scary. Thanks for offering the link.

got any English muffins? and not the queer cinnamon-raisin crap


Ever hear of 'Far Too Gone'  Its' about some self-loathing transvestite-in-denial who thinks he's Tori Amos
and his gothic slut girlfriend "Malaise". He starts flipping out on everyone, it's quite
grotesque in the same way 'Sense and Sensibility' was. seriously I'm a huge fan. I have several fetishes,
but besides that, surprisingly normal.

I thought
you'd be interested in checkin it out. I hope you like it yo

bye now (kisses)

Adding more interests... [Mar. 27th, 2005|02:34 pm]

[music |Dresden Dolls Concert Video]

Just as Meisje said in her comment in the welcome post I was thinking of other interests to add. And so I figured knowing Evie she won't mind me listing my ideas of some here then she can add them and if she's not sure on any she can ask why I think it'd be good to use. Kay?

Mouling Rouge (Freedom of expression, boheimian(sp)), The Dresden Dolls, (?? Linking the 'freedom of expression?) Cinthia Nixon, Portia De Rossi, 8 women (movie), Ellen Degeneres (Yeah, I know it seems cliche to have her on here but it's only cliche cuz it's true that she needs to be on here. Love that woman.) Alan Cumming, La Cage Aux Follies, The L Word, Bad Girls, (tv show) Helen & Nikki (Couple in Bad Girls, very influencal on the British veiw of lesbians on television) Tipping the Velvet, Bound, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Marlene Dietrich, (Yeah, I know there ones are probably already on here or will be put on in the near future), Megan Mullally, Sean Hayes, Willow & Tara (how did I forget that?!) Brini Maxwell, Graham Norton..

Any more? :-)

Welcome. [Mar. 26th, 2005|05:02 pm]

I've decided to make a welcome message. I've pretty much busted full speed ahead into this community not really taking very long to think anything over. It was just a zip zip zoom and there it was, right out of my head (or my arse--whichever one it happens to have escaped from). Anyway, if there is anything I've not done that I should have done or anything questionable that you see right off the bat please please inform me of my horrid ways.

As there is *looks around* only one person currently here besides myself I'll hold off the weekly subject of discussion until next week.

If anyone comes in please feel free to comment and post and do whatever you want. I've got a blank wall here and I'm giving everyone spray-cans in which to make it loverly.

I do hope this community survives more than a few days. I'm feeling pretty dern flighty now. Let's hope something permanent has come out of this flight as apposed to me crashing in a bowl full of jell-o. Anything else would be too dull--and perhaps a bit painful.

A new community pondering the portrayals of GLBT in movies, television, books, stage, and other forms of entertainment, discuss:
