I watch a lot of movies. I like to make lists; sometimes I make so many lists, my friends get annoyed. It seems these two are perfect together. In honor of Pride Month, dear unicorns, here is a list, in no particular order, of my favorite LGBT movies.
I turned 13 in July, 1978. I was headed into eighth grade in a small middle school in a small town in Kentucky. The country’s economy was bad and our little town was hit hard: well-paying jobs in the coal mines and the few factories we had disappeared and there weren’t any new industries to take their places. I lived in a dry county, except for the VFW or American Legion and private clubs like the Elks, Lions and Moose Clubs where liquor was served illegally with a wink and a nudge and the occasional raid during election year.
