Two new queer delights streaming on Netflix

Posted on Categories queermatterLabels , , , Leave a comment on Two new queer delights streaming on Netflix

Queerguru loves Netflix ….. BUT  …… they do have this annoying habit of promoting their 10 best movies of the week.  Or their own Original Programming.    As much as we may love/like most of that they have far more goodies that are so tucked away that if you are careful you could miss  them … Continue reading



THE DORIAN AWARDS …. the ones that Queerguru really respects

Posted on Categories queermatterLabels , , , Leave a comment on THE DORIAN AWARDS …. the ones that Queerguru really respects

Although some people are still hanging on to see who gets handed an OSCAR this coming weekend, here at Queerguru we are celebrating THE DORIANS, the ONLY film awards we count on.   Of course, we could be a tad biased as these increasing prestigious awards are in the gift of G.A.L.E.C.A. The Society of LGBTQ … Continue reading



Aaron Bear talks about YES I AM: THE RIC WEILAND STORY

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , Leave a comment on Aaron Bear talks about YES I AM: THE RIC WEILAND STORY

 



Queerguru is frequently drawn to Seattle as it is the home of such an extraordinarily wonderful and unique queer culture that is so unlike any other US city. With Dina Martina as its unofficial patron saint, there seems to be no end to the talent that emerges from there.  

We were back there again this week to talk with filmmaker Aaron Bear and when we asked if he thought it was all to do with ‘something in the water’ he immediately responded that it was actually ‘something in the rain.”  

We first came across Bear’s work in 2017 when we reviewed his debut film, Finding Kim.  It was a heart-touching compelling documentary about Kim Byford who at the age of 49 had decided that the time is finally right to complete her transition from female to male.   We wrote back then that it was an unmissable gem of a film.

Now on the eve of his latest documentary about to be screened as part of Miami’s OUTshine LGBTQ Film Festival this week so we talked with Bear about YES I AM: The Ric Weiland Story.  Queerguru is still reeling from the fact that we had never previously heard of Weiland who was one of the greatest queer activists and philanthropists EVER.

It’s a fascinating story that needs to reach the audience it so deserves, particularly within the LGBTQ community.   

P.S. It goes without saying, that Weiland spent a large part of his life in Seattle too.

 

 





Truman & Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation : reviewed by Andrew Hebden

Posted on Categories queertiquesLabels , , , , Leave a comment on Truman & Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation : reviewed by Andrew Hebden

  For those of us who might be outrageously, but fairly, accused of being more interested in mentioning that we have read Truman Capote or Tennesse Williams than actually reading them, this is the perfect documentary. Its mixture of biography, gossip, observations, and anecdotes in their famously distinct voices conveys a sense of both their … Continue reading



Oscar Wilde’s THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY gets a star studded production

Posted on Categories queermatterLabels , , , , , , Leave a comment on Oscar Wilde’s THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY gets a star studded production

I was always taught, and always teach, that drama occurs in the present tense – that theatre’s most valuable asset as a mode of storytelling lay in its presentation of the here and now, a story unfolding before you. This production/adaptation of Wilde’s classic novel makes the bold decision to deliver a retrospective narration: Dorian … Continue reading
