Trans filmmaker & activist Jake Graf talks about Headspace

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,

Brit trans activist and filmmaker Jake Graf talked to queerguru for P.T.V. on the day of the launch of his latest movie Headspace.  He released it to mark LGBT History month, and it is a powerful and somewhat disturbing insight into the daily trials and tribulations that trans people have to deal with that most other people do not give a second thought.

Since its release, and this interview, the film has clocked up over 1 million views in the space of a little over 24 hours .  It so deserves to be seen by as many people as possible, but before you check it out, see what Jake has to say about it all in our exclusive interview.



Two gay men and 11500 dogs …..

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , ,

 

Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta are a wonderful selfless gay couple who somehow managed to combine their lives as horse trainers with running a highly successful dog rescue service from their farmhouse in North Carolina.  Their story is told in a compelling new documentary directed by Ron Davis which tells the tale of how, with great personal sacrifices, they have found good homes for dogs that other people thought were unadoptable.

When the movie was being screened recently at Provincetown Film Festival they both stopped by the Pilgrim House Inn to talk to Queerguru about their heart-touching story .

Vlada Knowlton on THE MOST DANGEROUS YEAR

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , ,

 

Filmmaker Vlada Knowlton talks to Queerguru about The Most Dangerous Year her compelling documentary which covered 2016 when the transgender community in Washington State (and the rest of the US) were under threat.

Knowlton’s film is more emotional than others as one of the trans children she features is her own 5 year old daughter.  Hence the part of parents coming to terms with the realisation that they have a trans child is much more personal as she shares her experience of dealing with her initial ignorance and learning how to be supportive.

The film is currently playing in select US theaters and will be available on DVD/VOD later this month

In a very noisy Press Room at the Miami Film Festival, dancer/choreographer Jamal Sims talks about his directing debut, along with Jordan Finnegan his producer, of When The Beat Drops an exciting new queer black dance documentary on the fabulous world of ‘bucking’ that premiered at the Festival.

The movie’s other producers are the legendary  ‎Fenton Bailey‎ & ‎Randy Barbato of World of Wonder fame, so we can expect to see the film surfacing either at a Festival near you soon or on some streaming platform or even TV.  Watch this space.

The interview with Roger Walker-Dack was filmed by Hussein Wentz for www.queergurutv.com at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach.
