Melissa May - “Dear Ursula” (WoWPS 2014)

"You, big lady, were the only Disney character who ever looked like me. And while you may not have had the waist line of a princess, I’ll be goddamned if you didn’t have the swagger of a queen."

Performing during prelims at the 2014 Women of the World Poetry Slam. Melissa placed 7th overall in the tournament.

Let us not forget one of the most important things about the Universal Monsters era: The Creature From The Black Lagoon was created by a woman, Milicent Patrick. Nearly unheard of at the time, ms Patrick is responsible for creating one of the single most recognizable characters, not only in Universal history but in all of film history. She was an incredible talent and she should be honored as such.

 “And that’s what happens when a lesbian directs a lesbian kiss. And then there were never any more lazy, stereotypical lesbian characters in American film ever again. Okay, not really, but every time you see a movie where a lesbian doesn’t kill anyone, doesn’t kill herself or doesn’t use a passport, it’s a victory. Go lesbians!” — Film critic (and favorite film gay) Alonso Duralde (X)Here is a little information post. Nothing fancy. It is far from complete, but lets face it, a lot of lesbian cinema makes me want to throw my television, computer and most electronics out the window because they are so bad (Go Fish, Claire of the Moon, etc). These films range from stellar to alright, but I’m sure there are still a few decent ones I missed. For the TV section, I’ve only linked shows that have (or had) a lesbian as a main character/series regular. No stunt “suddenly lesbian for sweeps” shows here!Unfortunately, no downloads here (Tumblr police are watching, y’all). The links direct you to the project’s IMDB pages. I hope you discover something new to enjoy.
