  Diagnosing Difference

Diagnosing Difference
 
Transgender people who need hormones or other treatments associated with their gender identities must ordinarily be diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID) before doctors will provide appropriate care. Diagnosing Difference (2010) presents the problems transgender people experience with the stigma of GID, the impact it has on their lives, and a variety of opinions about what should be done to address it. The exceptionally engaging and well-made video is an excellent introduction to the medical challenges facing the transgender community.

  Anger Me

Anger Me
 
Anger Me (2006) is a biographical film about influential gay underground filmmaker and independent film distribution pioneer Kenneth Anger (b. 1927). The film consists largely of a long interview with the auteur in which he says he finds his muse in the occult, especially the work of bisexual mystic Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Though its talking-head format and Anger's reticence about his private life limit the video's audience appeal, Anger Me is a useful introduction to Anger's work.

  Transforming Healthcare: Transgender Competency for Healthcare Providers

Transforming Healthcare: Transgender Competency for Healthcare Providers
 
This short, professionally produced video features patients and medical professionals who span the breadth of the trans spectrum. Stories of personal encounters with an often unsympathetic medical system are complemented by a series of simple, concrete recommendations for improvements. Since most of the difficulties trans people face in medical environments match those they face in society at large, this compelling video is a good fit for any audience interested in learning about the challenges trans people face and supporting them in their struggle to make things better.

  Jeff Sheng: Don

Jeff Sheng: Don't Ask, Don't Tell
 
Jeff Sheng is a Los Angeles-based artist who has devoted 2009 and 2010 to photographing gay, lesbian, and bisexual American military servicemembers who serve under the Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) policy that requires them to keep their sexuality secret in order to avoid discharge.

In the nine photographs featured here, as in the rest of the photographs in the DADT series, Sheng has deliberately obscured the identities of his subjects in order to protect them from prosecution under DADT.

  Gay Sex in the Seventies

Gay Sex in the '70s
 
Gay Sex in the '70s is a compilation of the reminiscences of gay New Yorkers about the explosion of sexual freedom they experienced during the period between the Stonewall riots in 1969 and the emergence of AIDS in the early 1980s. Though the film focuses on gay life in New York's predominantly white West Village and Fire Island and ignores smaller minority gay communities elsewhere in New York, it is useful for its depiction of the libertinism of the 1970s in New York's best-known gay ghetto.

Small Town Gay Bar
 
Small Town Gay Bar tells the recent history of several Mississippi gay bars and paints a vivid picture of queer life in a part of the country where the closet is a prerequisite for survival for most glbtq people. In the film, glbtq men and women of Northeastern Mississippi describe the important role a few ramshackle gay bars play in helping them make do and even thrive in one of the most homophobic regions of the United States.
