Queer Quota

| No Comments

I do not feel that there is a detraction from the "queer quota" because the two leads do not identify as lesbian. However, I do feel that out of the millions of queer identified individuals that they couldn't find two to play the part is of interest; I understand they wanted to use big identifiable names to pull in audiences and almost make the film a little less threatening to the audiences whom may be uncomfortable or put off initially by queer film. I think if anything it almost is a commentary of Hollywood and workers who are clearly not heterosexual are made to almost not allowed to be themselves. I think that Female Trouble is boundary less and because of that has a stronger following, whether or not the director is queer or not is almost irrelevant to myself.
