At the risk of being a humourless feminist, I am sick of the marginal and flippant role that lesbians are cast in during LGBTQ media. Pride, an otherwise beautiful film, portrays lesbians as one dimensional trophies in mens groups, and women’s issues as nagging and nit-picking.
How can we call ourselves a community when a film lauded for its progressive message gives more lines to one straight female character than all the queer women combined? This is not so much a rule of media about the LGBTQ+ community, because there are no exceptions to prove it. It’s more of a historical blight.
