I just spent two days working in San Diego and with four hour breaks in between shows, I’ve watched A LOT of YouTube. Just when I thought I got to the end of lesbian content on YouTube I find a rabbit hole of new content.
So right now I want to share some shorts I really like.
OH! Before I forget! I read something incredibly exciting on Twitter.
1-EMPTY SKY (2011) DIR. J. MICHAEL VARGAS STARRING MAIARA WALSH, SARAH KATHLEEN ROSEN
I’ve watched this one at least five or six times. It’s really beautiful and an amazing example of how sometimes male directors can overlook the gender of the characters to really hit home a story simply about love.
This one was even “liked” by my grandmother who isn’t always the most open minded of people (I love you Nana). I’m sure I’ll hear her real opinion when I visit home in a few weeks.
2-WHAT YOUR LESBIAN FRIEND IS ACTUALLY THINKING (2014) BUZZFEED STARRING HANNAH HART
Okay, this one isn’t really a short but after talking about Go Fish and watching Empty Sky I thought your brain could use a break. It had me laughing so hard. So true.
3-BESIDE HER (2012) DIR. CARRIE CARNEVALE STARRING ERIKA FLORES, ASHLEY WATKINS
Now I’m a little biased to this one because Erika is a good friend of mine (even though she bailed on our plans for the opening night of Outfest! grr) and Ashley was in my project (Once Upon A Zipper) until I had to cut her out for time 😦 I’m sorry Ashley!
Carrie is truly an amazing director and this project is so beautiful. Here is a link to her production company website 17 Films. Keep up with her because she’s going to be doing some amazing things.
I know what you are thinking. You are watching Ashley thinking…man…why does she look so familiar…why am I picturing her in her underwear (aside from the obvious reason…I’ve seen the woman in person. She really is that gorgeous.) Well! I have the answer to that right here
Again, you’re welcome.
