Lesbian Visibility Week 2024 (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, April 20, 2024

To kick off Lesbian Visibility Week that runs Monday April 22nd to Saturday April 27th the documentary “Ahead Of The Curve” will be released on Netflix April 22nd. The award-winning documentary is directed & produced by Jen Rainin & Rivkah Beth Medow & features Melissa Etheridge, Lea DeLaria, Jewelle Gomez & Franco Stevens. “Ahead Of The Curve” tells the story of how Franco Stevens launched Curve the best-selling lesbian magazine ever published with a fist full of credit cards, a lucky run at the horse track & chutzpah for days. The film tracks the power of lesbian visibility & community from the early ‘90s to the present day through the story of Stevens founding of the magazine. Since then Franco launched The Curve Foundation whose mission is to empower lesbian, queer women, trans women & non-binary people to share our culture & our stories, connect with each other & raise visibility. Now to ensure that LGBTQ women & nonbinary people are seen & recognized for their contributions to society The Curve Foundation is championing Lesbian Visibility Week in the United States. Curve’s Lesbian Visibility Week programming includes an Inaugural Curve Power List of LGBTQ+ women & nonbinary trailblazers, a Speaker Series including panels on critical topics such as LGBTQ Women in the Corporate Workplace, Intersections of Disability & Queerness, Race & Sexuality, Trans Inclusion, the Importance of Intergenerational Conversations & Preserving Our Stories & more. I talked filmmaker Jen Rainin & Franco Stevens about what they hope to accomplish with their film “Ahead Of The Curve” & their spin on our LGBTQ issues in this inclusive podcast. LISTEN
