Reel Charlie’s 30 Days of Gay (film reviews) Recap

reel charlie 30 days of gay

Reel Charlie posts chronologically so even though you’ve landed at the end of 30 Days of Gay, this is the perfect spot to begin: click on the film title, Parting Glances upper left above this post to scroll backwards through the 30 days of LGBT film and television reviews for Gay Pride June 2015. Or if you’re already scrolling backwards in the blog, just keep going to see all 30 Days.

Reel Charlie’s 30 Days of Gay has been a labor of love. I started out strong, heard from Kit Hesketh Harvey the screenwriter for Maurice about a week and a half in which energized me like nothing else. Had a lot of great Twitter adds. Hit a wall around the 21st, but persevered and made it to the 30th with a slew of new film reviews – films I love but had yet to review on Reel Charlie and brand-new films I watched for the very first time. I even managed to review a season of television before the end of June.

I hope this chunk of Reel Charlie shows you how diverse and remarkable LGBT films have been and continue to be. There are still so many more films to review. When I began this project 30 days ago, I had no idea how significant 2015 Pride would be in the United States. On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality for lesbian, gay, and bisexual same-sex couples. It really does get better. Eternally grateful to all the women and men who spoke out, fought, marched, protested, and lived their lives out loud so we could get to this moment. Still a lot of work to do but what a celebration this has been in 2015.
