Single All The Way: Já podemos ver o trailer do primeiro filme de Natal queer da Netflix

Niel Tomodachi

Netflix divulgou o trailer de Single All the Way, o primeiro filme de Natal queer da plataforma de streaming.

Nele iremos acompanhar Peter (Michael Urie), um homem desesperado por evitar ser julgado pela sua família por se encontrar solteiro. Assim, Peter convence o seu melhor amigo Nick (Luke MacFarlane) em viajar com ele para as festividades e fingir ser o seu namorado. O que Peter não sabe é que sua mãe (Kathy Najimy) lhe arranjou um blind-date e isso deverá mudar toda a história desta comédia-romântica.

Também com Jennifer Coolidge, a popular atriz e o seu humor mordaz parecem roubar desde logo a cena: “Os gays sabem como fazer coisas. E por algum motivo, estão sempre obcecados comigo.

O filme estreia a 2 de dezembro e é este o seu fabuloso trailer:

1."Summer Sons" Lee Mandelo

81ZVn2FSxFL.jpg

Andrew and Eddie did everything together, best friends bonded more deeply than brothers, until Eddie left Andrew behind to start his graduate program at Vanderbilt. Six months later, only days before Andrew was to join him in Nashville, Eddie dies of an apparent suicide. He leaves Andrew a horrible inheritance: a roommate he doesn’t know, friends he never asked for, and a gruesome phantom with bleeding wrists that mutters of revenge.

As Andrew searches for the truth of Eddie’s death, he uncovers the lies and secrets left behind by the person he trusted most, discovering a family history soaked in blood and death. Whirling between the backstabbing academic world where Eddie spent his days and the circle of hot boys, fast cars, and hard drugs that ruled Eddie’s nights, the walls Andrew has built against the world begin to crumble, letting in the phantom that hungers for him.

50261993.jpg

Powerful shipping magnate Evelyn Perdanu lives a tight, contained life, holding herself at a distance from all who would get close to her. Her family is dead, her country is dying, and when something foul comes to the city of Delphinium, the brittle, perilous existence she's built for herself is strained to breaking.

When one of her ships arrives in dock, she counts herself lucky that it made it through the military blockades slowly strangling her city. But one by one, the crew fall ill with a mysterious sickness: an intense light in their eyes and obsessive behavior, followed by a catatonic stupor. Even as Evelyn works to exonerate her company of bringing plague into her besieged capital city, more and more cases develop, and the afflicted all share one singular obsession: her.

Panicked and paranoid, she retreats to her estate, which rests on a foundation of secrets: the deaths of her family, the poisons and cures that hasten the dissolution of the remaining upper classes, and a rebel soldier, incapacitated and held hostage in a desperate bid for information. But the afflicted are closing in on her, and bringing the attention of the law with them. Evelyn must unearth her connection to the spreading illness, and fast, before it takes root inside her home and destroys all that she has built.

TENNESSEE LANCASTER HAS A HIDDEN GIFT.

She can pry into folks' memories with just a touch of their belongings. It's something she's always kept hidden -- especially from her big, chaotic family. Their lives are already chock-full of worries about her dad's job and Mom's blues without Tennie rocking the boat.

But when the Lancasters move to the mountains for a fresh start, Tennie's gift does something new. Instead of just memories, her touch releases a ghost with a terrifying message: Trouble is coming. Tennie wants to ignore it. Except her new friend Fox -- scratch that, her only friend, Fox -- is desperate to go ghost hunting deep in the forest. And when Tennie frees even more of the spirits, trouble is exactly what she gets... and it hits close to home. The ghosts will be heard, and now Tennie must choose between keeping secrets or naming an ugly truth that could tear her family apart.

Magic and mayhem abound in this spooky story about family legacies, first friendships, and how facing the ghosts inside can sometimes mean stirring up a little bit of ruckus.

91+SxgeMzZL.jpg

A young woman living in a rigid, puritanical society discovers dark powers within herself in this stunning, feminist fantasy debut.

In the lands of Bethel, where the Prophet’s word is law, Immanuelle Moore’s very existence is blasphemy. Her mother’s union with an outsider of a different race cast her once-proud family into disgrace, so Immanuelle does her best to worship the Father, follow Holy Protocol, and lead a life of submission, devotion, and absolute conformity, like all the other women in the settlement.

But a mishap lures her into the forbidden Darkwood surrounding Bethel, where the first prophet once chased and killed four powerful witches. Their spirits are still lurking there, and they bestow a gift on Immanuelle: the journal of her dead mother, who Immanuelle is shocked to learn once sought sanctuary in the wood.

Fascinated by the secrets in the diary, Immanuelle finds herself struggling to understand how her mother could have consorted with the witches. But when she begins to learn grim truths about the Church and its history, she realizes the true threat to Bethel is its own darkness. And she starts to understand that if Bethel is to change, it must begin with her.

Courtney Gould’s thrilling debut The Dead and the Dark is about the things that lurk in dark corners, the parts of you that can’t remain hidden, and about finding home in places―and people―you didn’t expect.

The Dark has been waiting for far too long, and it won't stay hidden any longer.

Something is wrong in Snakebite, Oregon. Teenagers are disappearing, some turning up dead, the weather isn’t normal, and all fingers seem to point to TV’s most popular ghost hunters who have just returned to town. Logan Ortiz-Woodley, daughter of TV's ParaSpectors, has never been to Snakebite before, but the moment she and her dads arrive, she starts to get the feeling that there's more secrets buried here than they originally let on.

Ashley Barton’s boyfriend was the first teen to go missing, and she’s felt his presence ever since. But now that the Ortiz-Woodleys are in town, his ghost is following her and the only person Ashley can trust is the mysterious Logan. When Ashley and Logan team up to figure out who—or what—is haunting Snakebite, their investigation reveals truths about the town, their families, and themselves that neither of them are ready for. As the danger intensifies, they realize that their growing feelings for each other could be a light in the darkness.

"Maurice" de E. M. Forster

Niel Tomodachi

“És a única pessoa bela que vi na vida. Adoro a tua voz e tudo o que tem a ver contigo, até as tuas roupas ou a divisão onde estás sentado. Adoro-te.”

1507-1.jpg

Sobre o Livro:

Da adolescência aos anos da universidade, em Cambridge, e à vida profissional na firma do seu pai, Maurice Hall representa o papel do homem inglês convencional. Mas por baixo da fachada de conformidade, Maurice sonha poder libertar-se das amarras da sociedade e assumir a sua verdadeira identidade.

O primeiro amor de Maurice, Clive Durham, apresenta-o aos gregos antigos e à beleza da atração pelo mesmo sexo. Para Clive, a relação entre os dois é uma forma elevada do amor, uma relação puramente platónica, sem espaço para intimidade física.

Quando Clive casa com uma mulher, Maurice fica devastado. Incapaz de seguir o mesmo percurso, procura um hipnotista que o possa curar da homossexualidade. Neste confronto entre solidão, vergonha e busca pela felicidade, Maurice acaba por se revoltar contra as regras tácitas da sociedade em que vive.

 

Sobre o Autor:

E. M. Forster (1879-1970) é sobretudo reconhecido e admirado por obras como Um Quarto com Vista (1908), Howards End (1910) e Passagem para a Índia (1924), e pela controversa publicação póstuma de Maurice (1971), romance que desvenda e exalta o amor homossexual. Da adolescência no Surrey aos estudos no King’s College e à sua ligação ao Grupo de Bloomsbury, cedo se norteou pela crença na plena realização e na liberdade do homem, capaz de desarmar as hipocrisias do puritanismo e da sociedade britânica da época. Pacifista e objetor de consciência na Primeira Guerra Mundial, fez serviço cívico na Cruz Vermelha e visitou o Egipto, tendo travado amizade com o poeta Konstandinos Kavafis em Alexandria. Foi membro da Union of Ethical Societies e famoso pelas suas intervenções na rádio em defesa de reformas sociais e da liberdade de expressão.

Festival de cinema Queer Lisboa revela primeiros 40 filmes em competição

Niel Tomodachi

O Queer Lisboa - Festival Internacional de Cinema Queer, a celebrar 25 anos, revelou hoje os primeiros 40 filmes que integram a edição deste ano, que decorre entre 17 e 25 de setembro.

naom_5b8b0e916aaee.jpg

lista de filmes hoje anunciada, em comunicado, inclui "as 22 curtas-metragens que competem pelo Prémio de Melhor Curta-Metragem, as 10 curtas do Prémio de Melhor Curta-Metragem de Escola Europeia e os oito filmes que competem na Secção Queer Art".

Na competição pelo Prémio de Curta-Metragem, "um terço dos trabalhos são de cineastas que reincidem no Festival, todxs elxs com obras radicais que reafirmam os seus estilos", pode ler-se no comunicado hoje divulgado.

Entre os 22 filmes, há dois portugueses - 'A table for one', de Carlos Lobo, e 'Luz de Presença', de Diogo Costa Amarante -, "quatro delicatessens vindas de longínquas realidades e três comoventes documentários; para além de filmes distópicos, ou que convidam a evadir-se, ou a sonhar com universos potencialmente melhores".

Na competição In My Shorts, na qual é premiada a Melhor Curta-Metragem de Escola Europeia, há este ano "uma forte presença francesa, com dois filmes da La Fresnoy e outros sobre temas tão importantes como os do VIH/sida, o 'cruising' e a adição às drogas".

A secção Queer Art conta com três filmes brasileiros ou de coprodução brasileira - 'Cinco Casas', de Bruno Gularte Barreto, 'Desaprender a dormir', de Gustavo Vinagre, e 'Vaga Carne', de Ricardo Alves Jr. e Grace Passô - entre os oito em competição.

A missão desta secção, salienta a organização, passa por "expor objetos artísticos que se enquadrem numa prática da linguagem cinematográfica cuja estética desafie os limites da sua própria classificação".

"Este ano é composto por filmes atravessados pelo desajuste da (in)formação identitária que nos define dentro de normas e categorias rígidas. Cada um, oferece-nos hipóteses para a subversão dos cânones", lê-se no comunicado.

Anteriormente tinha já sido anunciado que o Queer Lisboa irá dividir-se entre o Cinema São Jorge e a Cinemateca Portuguesa, contará com a presença e o cinema do realizador norte-americano Gus Van Sant e terá um projeto de itinerância noutras localidades.

Gus Van Sant vai estar em Lisboa em setembro, para estrear o espetáculo 'Andy' na Bienal de Artes Contemporâneas - BoCA, mas, fruto de uma parceria entre a bienal e o festival, estará também presente no Queer Lisboa.

O festiva prepara uma retrospetiva de "homenagem à obra de um dos autores mais prolíficos do cinema queer norte-americano", contando com filmes como 'Mala Noche' (1986), 'A caminho de Idaho' (1991) e 'Elephant' (2003).

O Queer Lisboa deu ainda "carta branca" a Gus Van Sant para programar na Cinemateca Portuguesa, tendo este escolhido dois filmes que fazem a ponte com o espetáculo de palco que estreará na BoCA: 'Batman Dracula' (1964), de Andy Warhol, e "Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film" (2006), de Ric Burns.

Gus Van Sant irá estar presente numa sessão na Cinemateca Portuguesa para uma conversa com o público.

O Queer Lisboa revelou em maio que quer fazer chegar o cinema de temática 'queer' a outras localidades, para lá do eixo Lisboa-Porto, que já acolhe o festival.

Esse "projeto de itinerância" acontecerá entre novembro e a primavera de 2022, em parceria com a associação ILGA-Portugal e com filmes que abordam temáticas sobre migrações, refugiados, direitos humanos, estigmas sobre VIH/Sida, sobre transgénero ou ativismo LGBTQI+.

O Queer Porto está agendado para outubro, entre os dias 12 e 16, e vai decorrer no Teatro Rivoli, Reitoria da Universidade do Porto, Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto, Maus Hábitos e mala voadora.

Há uma nova livraria inclusiva para conhecer no Porto

Niel Tomodachi

A Livraria aberta define-se como queer, mas é muito mais do que isso. Abriu em junho e quer ser um espaço de liberdade.

de4eaec8dfc49a2b2224275720c6310d-754x394.jpg

Numa altura em que o setor literário em Portugal atravessa — como muitos outros — uma situação difícil, abrir uma livraria é quase um ato de coragem. Ou de loucura, dependendo do ponto de vista.

Seja qual for o caso, há uma nova livraria que precisa de conhecer: a Livraria aberta. Fica no Porto, abriu a 28 de junho e define-se como uma “livraria queer”.

Embora tenha realmente uma ligação a todas as questões LGBTI, é muito mais do que isso. E quer ser uma livraria de bairro, onde todos se sintam bem, independentemente de qualquer rótulo que possam colocar-lhe.

“Para nós, queer é tudo o que não é normativo. Pessoas que estão à margem são também queer e podem ter mais do que uma exclusão”, conta à New in Porto um dos sócios do projeto, Paulo Brás.

Isto quer dizer que uma pessoa pode ser marginalizada porque é de uma minoria sexual, pela sua classe social, por uma deficiência física ou tudo isto em simultâneo. É por isso que a Livraria aberta pretende ser o mais abrangente possível e incluir todas as minorias.

Antes de saber mais sobre o que vamos encontrar nesta livraria, convém perceber de onde veio toda a ideia. Este era um sonho já antigo de Paulo Brás e de Ricardo Braun. O casal de 32 e 35 anos, respetivamente, está junto há cerca de oito anos e partilha a paixão pela literatura e pelas artes em geral. Paulo é formado em Literatura, foi durante vários anos produtor cultural e é investigador nesta área. Ricardo, por sua vez, está ligado aos bastidores do teatro, à dramaturgia e à tradução.

“Tínhamos vontade de ter um projeto próprio e a pandemia acabou por acelerar o processo. Como aconteceu com muita gente, tivemos mais tempo para pensar e surgiu uma oportunidade que de outra forma talvez não existiria.”

Conhecedores do panorama livreiro do Porto, começaram a delinear todo o conceito do projeto no final do ano passado e aproveitaram a pausa do segundo confinamento para preparar tudo. Assim começou a ser pensada esta livraria, de estilo minimalista tanto no mobiliário e decoração como até nas próprias estantes. Aqui não há grandes prateleiras do chão ao teto carregadas de livros onde parece que não há espaço nem para mais um. A ideia é mesmo que haja uma sensação de leveza, até pelas estantes meio vazias.

Quanto aos livros, embora tenham temáticas mais associadas às minorias, à identidade de género ou à orientação sexual, vão muito além disso. Há poesia, romance e tudo o que possa procurar. Há uma secção infantojuvenil que pretende ser ainda mais abrangente e os livros são escolhidos conforme os responsáveis achem que se enquadram no conceito.

Há autores e livros que podem ser considerados mais ligados a estas temáticas, mas aqui podem ser até mais importantes os personagens. Não há uma regra rígida. Até nas estantes os livros estão classificados por autor e não por género ou temática.

“Temos aqui um pouco de tudo, mesmo livros que não são óbvios enquanto LGBTI. Podem ser feministas, de mulheres negras, de pessoas com deficiência, narrativas de e sobre pessoas excluídas, essencialmente.”

O catálogo neste momento ainda é reduzido, mas está a ser construído aos poucos, com ajuda de alguns clientes. E se não encontrar o livro que procura, pode sempre pedir para encomendar. Para já, pode comprar os livros na loja ou através das redes sociais, mas o site da livraria está já a ser preparado e em breve será possível também fazer as suas compras online.

Está também a ser pensada a inclusão de uma programação cultural regular, algumas conversas, atividades para crianças e, eventualmente mais para a frente, até a publicação de alguns livros.

51931067.jpg

Sobre o Autor:

Felix Love has never been in love—and, yes, he’s painfully aware of the irony. He desperately wants to know what it’s like and why it seems so easy for everyone but him to find someone. What’s worse is that, even though he is proud of his identity, Felix also secretly fears that he’s one marginalization too many—Black, queer, and transgender—to ever get his own happily-ever-after.

When an anonymous student begins sending him transphobic messages—after publicly posting Felix’s deadname alongside images of him before he transitioned—Felix comes up with a plan for revenge. What he didn’t count on: his catfish scenario landing him in a quasi–love triangle....

But as he navigates his complicated feelings, Felix begins a journey of questioning and self-discovery that helps redefine his most important relationship: how he feels about himself.

Felix Ever After is an honest and layered story about identity, falling in love, and recognizing the love you deserve.
