Between the outrage over Russian anti-gay laws and the controversy surrounding the ballyhooed French lesbian flick “Blue Is The Warmest Colour,” LGBT issues are on everyone’s mind lately. This is no less the case here at The Spread and so for March we bring you a number of stories at the intersection of cinema and the LGBT world. Lynn Klein gets us started with with a short history of this month’s theme as well as an exploration of lesbian love in particular as depicted on the silver screen. Guest writer Lucinda Holt then discusses stereotypes in Hollywood. Staff writer Marija Makeska brings us a fascinating interview with film maker Petar Veljacic that covers his internationally-screened film Being a Transgender Person in a Two-Gender Society. For those who want to focus on the viewing experience, guest writers Samantha Ward and Simon Riley give you the lowdown on films The Kids Are Alright, My Own Private Idaho and Dallas Buyers Club. And finally, don’t forget to check out our Jammer of the Month, costume designer Hayley Nebauer. Enjoy! – Jared Fryer Director, Cinema Jam
