What's Lesbian Diaries about & what created one to produce this documentary?

The lesbian Diaries is actually an emotional deconstruction of lesbian dating and a glance at the overarching tradition and dilemmas increasingly being experienced by scene. We're taking a look at the pitfalls of online dating and errors that many lesbians make in the process of choosing lovers and providing them with tips about how to boost their method. In addition our company is evaluating many adverse trends in LGBT society that have appeared through the years. Now that homosexual marriage is legal – we should instead change all of our attentions to many other elements of the community to make certain positive development in every respect including advancements in system of one's world.

Will there be anything you heard during the interviews that amazed you?

Yes, I became seriously surprised to learn regarding rapid decrease of lesbian bars internationally – there are only 4 left in Ny and 1 in San Francisco – that has been rather unfortunate and surprising. I was in addition surprised to learn that discover anything called TERF lesbians that trying to exclude transgender people from town, besides the growing development of racism when you look at the scene.

If anyone is found out to end up being TERF, we will block and prohibit all of them from the system. So if you're lesbian and seeking for anyone…YOUR INDIVIDUALS ARE RIGHT HERE (in a safe and TERF-free area).

Exactly what are you the majority of worried about for future years from the society?

I am worried that future neighborhood would be very separated by brands that lesbians of most kinds will not become united. This would reduce the wide range of females on the market and offered or the potential for satisfying a possible companion. Also i'm concerned that the recent consider appearance is actually overriding taking a look at much deeper attributes, and therefore ladies might not take the time to re-evaluate their own approach to internet dating. Interracial online dating seems to be a giant concern from the lesbian scene – where not so many females perform or wish to participate in it. That is a far cry from the heterosexual globe.

And just what exactly are you presently the majority of excited about? Do you think we're going to maintain a beneficial set in a couple of years?

I am excited that becoming homosexual or lesbian isn't really frowned upon everything in the past. In several places throughout the world, we have been becoming recognized and are usually getting the capacity to end up being free about just who the audience is and just who we love, in public places. There can be more work to be performed. However, we have started the progress which I feel continues.

Possibly we could evaluate additional elements, but this will depend on the performance of your basic documentary.
