Queer Film Blogathon: Day 5

So this is it! The last set of contributions to the Queer Film Blogathon 2012. (Though please comment if you have any to add.) It’s been a hectic, fun week. I’d like to thank Caroline from Garbo Laughs, first and foremost, for inviting us to co-host and for just being all-around awesome. Thanks to everyone who participated by writing posts or entering the raffle. And you know what? Thank you for reading! I hope you had fun; I sure did!

And now, the posts:

  • Stacia from She Blogged By Night criticizes the complacency and complicity of the classic film blogging community, using the homophobia in Freebie and the Bean as an example.
  • Mary from One Stop Awesome discusses one of her (and my) favorite movies, Todd Haynes’ Velvet Goldmine. An Ewan McGregor nude shot is thankfully included.
  • Yvette from in so many words… has a pretty fantastic piece on the beauty of Brokeback Mountain.
  • Joseph from The Queer Film Blog gives us a queer reading of Prometheus. (Which I will read as soon as I’ve seen the movie!)
  • Finally, we have one more review from Christianne, on Call Me Kuchu, which details the plight of gays and lesbians in Uganda. (If this blogathon teaches everyone one thing, I hope it’s “Read Krell Laboratories all the time.”)

That’s technically it, but it’s not quite over yet, because 1) we still have raffle winners to announce tomorrow and 2) I hope the spirit of queer film blogging will live on all year ’round.

  1. Oh, dear. I think I’m blushing.
