Bloomington (2010)

Ever been hot for teacher? Well, then this movie is definitely for you! 
Former child actress, Jackie, attends college to search for her independence and winds up being romantically involved with one of her female professors, Catherine.
Hotness and drama ensues. Go watch it!

Anonymous whispered:you should totally do a TV show list

yeah well..i’ve been asked about it before, but i don’t post tv here, there are many blogs that do, so i feel like it’s unnecessary…i don’t even watch most of the shows that feature queer ladies (grey’s anatomy, rockie blue, last tango in hallifax etc.)

But I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. All my life long.

La vie d’Adèle (2013) 

arianacrazy whispered:I've watched nearly all of the movies on that lesbian movies list and I'm in love with them all!

That’s cool! Time for another one?

YOU GUYS!! Thank you to EVERYONE who picked up a copy of LUMBERJANES #1 this week! We’re all so excited with the response. And if you haven’t gotten yours yet, it’s not too late!!
If you’re interested in finding it at a local shop, www.findacomicshop.com. A lot of stores have sold out, but if you request one, they should order more for you! And remember that pre-ordering from a comic shop is THE BEST way to ensure a copy for yourself and support the series.
It’s available digitally on comixology!
Or if you’re interested in print copies arriving at your door step, get it from BOOM!

This comic was SO GOOD! I had high expectations for it and they were all met. There were the first hints of its queer girl couple being coupley, but I didn’t even mind that it didn’t get too explicit yet - the whole comic is a big ball of girl-love-positivity and I loved every minute of it. The end pages include a music mix from one of the characters that includes some rad artists like Laura Jane Grace, Janelle Monae and Jenny Owen Youngs. Definitely worth picking up - for yourself or a young comics-lover in your life!

Kyss Mig/Kiss Me (2011)

Mia is engaged to Tim and they seem like a happy couple. But her world gets flipped upside-down when she falls in love with her new stepmother’s lesbian daughter, Frida.
Talented, pretty Swedish actresses in a well-written gay movie? Yes please. Go watch it!

Anonymous whispered:Hi! Can you recommend me a few fast-paced romance books with a happy ending? Or just short ones. I have so many series to follow, so stand alone's would be a nice change.

Yeah, yeah of course! I know how you feel, series sometimes are frustrating, especially if you have to wait for the book to come out. They kinda hover over you and you get all anxious, because you don’t want to forget about it and at the same time it feels as an unfinished business you should deal with quickly to get out of your system. I’m not really into romance genre, but from what I’ve read I really liked - "The Sublime and Spirited Voyage of Original Sin" it’s about pirates and it’s funny, i’d say it’s a lighter read for “Black Sails” fans; Also "Dare, Truth or Promise" which turned out to be somewhat different from what I expected, but fun, yes it has an angsty part in the middle, but everything leads to happy ever after, plus characters are very quirky in a good way; You can read all the Radclyffe books, my favorite is "Innocent Hearts" it’s a western, couldn’t miss it; you can check Nancy Garden’s and Julie Anne Peter’s books too; People recommend me to read "A Very Civil Wedding", "The Princess Affair" and "Love Waits" very often, so I guess I should share. Anyway, hope it helps.

This is the second of four recommended reading lists of queer and queer-ish books, organized by Hogwarts houses! Gryffindor can be found here. ENJOY.

Nobody Passes: Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity edited by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore
This collection of short works on identity, community and authenticity covers a lot of territory - “passing” as related to gender, race, disability, work, nationality, sexuality, and more. Pick it up if you’re itching for more complex perspectives on social justice.

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel
Besides being an absolute masterpiece of the comics format, Bechdel’s memoir about her cold and inscrutable father earns major Ravenclaw appeal with its highbrow literary allusions. If psychology is more your thing, try her other memoir, Are You My Mother?

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
This book tells the story of two Mexican-American teens - Ari, an angry loner, and Dante, a quirky intellectual - who form a transformative bond and ponder over poetry, philosophy and life’s many mysteries. I haven’t gotten my hands on this one yet, but I’ve been told it’s one of those rare transcendent young adult books, emotionally resonant and masterfully crafted.

Israel/Palestine and the Queer International by Sarah Schulman
This latest work from the prolific author and longtime activist chronicles her travels through Tel Aviv and the West Bank and her growing consciousness of the occupation of Palestine. Read it for a knowledgeable queer perspective on a divisive topic.

Adaptation by Malinda Lo
There’s not much on this list for science aficionados, but hopefully some science fiction will suit you. Did you know Malinda Lo did graduate work on The X-Files? This novel, the first in a forthcoming series, has flavors of the 90s TV show and should delight fans of Mulder and Scully, creepy conspiracies, and queer representation in sci-fi lit.

Transgender History by Susan Stryker
For the history buffs - this concise text on transgender people in America between the mid twentieth century and early twenty-first puts trans communities and movements in historical context and offers a compact but comprehensive chronicle of our stories.
