“There’s a massive number of trans women who have been murdered and they’re yelling out from their graves for justice.”
That’s Victoria Cruz, the trans activist profiled in The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, a new documentary directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker David France.

Biopic Tom of Finland explores the life of Touko Laaksonen, a.k.a Tom of Finland, a.k.a. the king of homoeroticism, whose unapologetic drawings shattered taboos and helped bring gay male eroticism and leather fetish culture.
Laaksonen died in 1991 at the age of 71. 25 years later, he remains one of the most influential figures in the gay art scene, and is perhaps one of Finland’s most well-known LGBTQ artists. The Finnish-language biopic, directed by Dome Karukoski and starring Pekka Strang, will be released in early 2017.
