Official Trailer for 'Ahead of the Curve' Doc About Curve Lesbian Mag
"As we became more visible, we also became a target." The first official trailer has just debuted for an indie documentary titled Ahead of the Curve, premiering at the Frameline Film Festival taking place online later this month. From its start in 1990, Curve magazine (their website) was a visionary and unapologetic celebration of lesbian life from cover to cover. Facing the magazine’s possible demise in 2019, director Jen Rainin and Curve founder Franco Stevens explore current questions of lesbian visibility and legacy through interviews with contemporary LGBTQ+ individuals. The doc film looks to be not only a celebration of this magazine and all those linked to it, but a celebration of lesbian culture and all of its amazingness. "Ahead of the Curve is a new feature documentary about the extraordinary woman who started Curve magazine, and by doing so helped accelerate the political and social evolution of the nation." Check out the first look below.
