This week we can’t stop thinking about whether we believe or not, would rather be swept away by cinema, or bask in the amazing glory of the history of lesbian progress. I mean, they’re all worth doing so why not do them all?
1. The X-Files Mini Series
It’s been fourteen years since Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully have graced the small screen. Save for a terrible feature film back in 2008, the two have remained as hidden as the secret missions themselves. I won’t go into details in case those reading haven’t started the 6-part mini series, but I’ll say as a fan of the original series I can’t tell you how excited I was when the opening theme started and they hadn’t touched the original opening (as wonderfully cheesy as it is). There’s more to be seen from the duo if the fans have anything to say about it and I’m with them.
2. 2016 Sundance Film Festival
This year marks the 38th iteration of the international film festival. Already the biggest purchase of a film ever has been made for Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation,” a period piece about Nat Turner who led a slave rebellion in 1831. The film sold for $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight and is already screaming for Oscars in 2017. Sundance has been the foundation for some of today’s most influential filmmakers including Quentin Tarantino, Steven Soderbergh, Michel Gondry, and F. Gary Gray. This year is no different and the stakes are always high when it comes to who will take the awards.
3. Super Bowl 50
Broncos vs. Panthers. This is the first time the top teams from both the AFC and NFC have faced off in quite some time. Being that I’m (Caleb) from North Carolina I want to pull for them, but because I reside in Denver I feel a sense of obligation to my current status as a Broncos fan. It’s a tough call and I really don’t know what’s going to happen on the 7th. This is a clash of titans if anything at all.
This Instagram is a living document of the history behind powerful lesbian women and the affect they have had on the queer community. This Instagram also links to Kelly Rakowski’s website h-e-r-s-t-o-r-y.com featuring minimalist items on the history of lesbian fashion and what it means to be proud of who you are. Nephews couldn’t agree more on that subject. Plus 10% of their purchases go to the Lesbian Herstory Project.

Listen, because, damn.
