This has been in my DVD queue for awhile, but is now on its way from Netflix:
It's about an unlikely, but true, alliance between striking Welsh miners and a gay group during Thatcher's tenure as Prime Minister of Britain.
So far my favorite gay-themed movies are 1) Torch Song Trilogy and 2) Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. We'll see how this one stacks up.
I have Pandora's Make America Gay Again station playing. It's an interesting mix.
Funny, I've always experienced Pride month and gay rights issues from a strange position, because when I first got involved I was supportive of my boyfriend and his boyfriend (long story, let's just say that when I was very young I was in a tri-unity
domestic relationship that I left for good reasons) . And of course, my best friend is gay, and I consider him and his husband a part of my family.
But even though I, myself, am bisexual, I've never really felt part of the gay community itself. The closest was when I sang in a chorus of mostly lesbians, but they were not really open as a lesbian chorus. Part of that is that I haven't been in an actual long-term relationship with either gender since I divorced almost 25 years ago, just a short-lived one with a woman that was purely physical. Maybe I need to explore things a bit before I get into another relationship, and figure out what I really want, and whether I prefer one gender over the other.
Okay, I have some bread rising. It should be ready by 2 am. I think I'll listen to the music on a timer and go to sleep for a bit, and set a couple of alarms. The bread machine, incidentally, will turn itself off if I don't get up in time.
