    What's up?

    I'm from the south-west and I literally just signed up - v closeted atm so this seemed like a good idea (thank god for the internet).

    Also message me if you've seen the film Waterlillies because I need to vent - and not positively.

    Hi @Femdigger , welcome. Nancy is good people, so you've got an alright neighbor there.

    But that Moses, she be a lost cause. o_O

    Never saw Waterlillies. But sadly, too much queer cinema is wretched. And if it's good, chances are, they'll kill off the good characters.

    Welll! Harrummffph. "Sticks nose in the air and stalks off, too dignified to even entertain that remark" T&C apply


    (T&C: Previous slagging matches with Joey Bluenote's rapier wit had resulted in me being cut off at the knees and stomping (or stumping even) home with my foot in my mouth outwitted in every way)

    Tell me about it, Moses.

    I forced myself to sit through the typical build up in these types of movies n then was rewarded with that shocker of an ending

    You guys got any good film suggestions? I also need new book material, (other than finger smith and tipping the velvet)

    You'll scare her off, Ms. Moses. Telling her horror stories about me, I'm gentle as a kitten. *looks innocent.*

    Read Education of Cameron Post and currently studying Oranges but I'll check out the other two - can be hard to find these kind of obscure ones on kindle

    Did you say garden center @Femdigger ? I'm an avid gardener myself. The wife and I do a big veggie garden.

    I'd also add "Written on the Body" by Winterson. Though it's not explicitly gay, the narrator is "gender neutral," and the love interest is a women. So it's gay enough for me, lol.

    Welcome! Even though I "joined" the forums this year, I had previously "joined" AE in 2006(maybe?) and stumbled upon this website in 2005 when I was closeted and just starting to come out. Seeing the old vlogs about the L Word and Brunch with Bridget, the articles, recaps (etc.) helped me SO MUCH. I knew I was "homosexual" but I was not comfortable with saying lesbian because I felt that it was almost a cultural term. This website helped introduce me to that "culture" of sorts; acting like a gateway to a community that I didn't feel connected to but now consider a huge part of me. So, welcome to the community! Feel free to message me with any questions or advice that you may need while on your journey. Reaching out to people here (and elsewhere) helped me to find my voice when coming out.

    Yea...twas a shocker, especially as it was a rather uncomfortable build up. I assume you've seen 'Blue is the Warmest Colour'?


    Sorry, having problems with the 'reply' button within a thread. I was trying to respond to Femdiggers comment further up.

    Also, nice book suggestions Nancy. I haven't read a few of them. Will give them a go if they are available on Audible
