    Season 2 Finale: Finding Queerness in Animation

    Season 2 Finale: Finding Queerness in Animation

    Did you know that Ursula from The Little Mermaid was based on the legendary drag queen Divine? Nevertheless, queer representation in animated films, for children or adults, is few and far between. This and other tidbits await on this episode as we leave no queer stone unturned and ask, why isn’t there more positive LGBTQ+ content in animation? We also talk with animation filmmaker Thinh Nguyen, a graduate of the Viborg Animation Workshop, about her work.

    Vidste du, at Ursula fra Den lille havrue er baseret på den legendariske drag queen Divine? Ikke desto mindre er queer repræsentation i tegnefilm, både for voksne og børn, sjældent. I sæsonens sidste afsnit kigger vi under alle queer sten for at spørge, hvorfor er der ikke mere positivt LGBTQ+ indhold i tegnefilm? Vi taler også med animationsfilmskaberen Thinh Nguyen, som er uddannet fra Viborg Animation Workshop, om hendes arbejde.

    Season 2 Episode 7: Who Gets to be Intimate on Screen?

    TW: suicide


    What is intimacy in film, especially in queer film? On today’s episode of Coming Out of the Celluloid Closet, we dive into interpersonal relationships in LGBTQ+ film -- not only when it comes to sex and sexuality, but when inviting viewers into moments of emotional connection. With the help of our guests Benjamin Radjaipour and Gabi Buzadzic, we examine who gets to be intimate on screen. 


    //


    Hvad er intimitet på skærmen, især når det gælder queer film? I dagens afsnit af Coming Out of the Celluloid Closet snakker vi om personlige relationer i LGBTQ+ film - ikke kun når det kommer til sex og seksualitet, men også når seere inviteres med til intime øjeblikke. Med hjælp fra vores to gæster Benjamin Radjaipour og Gabi Buzadzic, udforsker vi hvem der får lov til at være intime på det store lærred.

    Season 2, Episode 6: This Is How We Do It - Queer Porn

    Season 2, Episode 6: This Is How We Do It - Queer Porn

    TW: Censorship, talk of discrimination


    What possibilities does queer porn create, and who is it for? Come with us as we talk to Max Disgrace, award-winning film director, film festival programmer aka smut peddler and proud trans-masculine pervert. He’s the director of Crystal Clear, Tribute, and Ruptured - which we are screening in this year’s This Is How We Do It program in MIX. We meander our way through understanding how pleasure, representation, archetypes and industry questions all manifest in the film medium that is decidedly for queers, by queers, and featuring queers.

    Hvilke mulighedere skaber queer porn, og hvem er det lavet til? Kom med os, når vi taler med Max Disgrace, prisvindende filminstruktør, filmfestivalprogrammerer, "aka smut peddler og stolt trans-maskulin pervert." Han er instruktøren bag Crystal Clear, Tribute og Ruptured - som vi viser i årets This Is How We Do It -program i MIX. I vores samtale prøver vi sammen at forstå, hvordan fornøjelse, repræsentation, arketyper og spørgsmål om industrien smelter sammen og manifesterer sig i filmmediet, der bestemt er for queers, af queers og med queers.

    We left you last week with Beck Heiberg and Maji Claire from the Ballroom community here in Copenhagen.

If you haven't heard the previous week's episode, go back and listen Part 1, because otherwise this episode won't make a lot of sense to you!

    Today we're diving into the ballroom scene: how it has been portrayed in pop culture in the past, and how it is portrayed today through different media.

    Season 2 Episode 3: Flipping the ”Dead Lesbian” Script

    Season 2 Episode 3: Flipping the ”Dead Lesbian” Script

    TW: mental illness, suicide, substance abuse.


    Why does it seem like the female characters in every “lesbian film” from the 90s and 2000s are suffering from mental illness and die? On this episode we discuss stereotypical portrayals of queer women, mental health, and the infamous Dead Lesbian Syndrome -- and what alternative stories we should be focusing on instead. We talk with Caroline Osander, leader of PsykInfo and organizer of the film festival “Don’t Fear The Weird,” which aims to break and challenge society’s taboos about mental illness. Please note that the interview is in Danish, but you can find episode transcripts in both Danish and English on mixcopenhagen.dk. 


    //



    Hvorfor virker det som om de kvindelige figurer i hver lesbisk film fra halvfemserne og 2000'erne lider af psykisk sygdom og derefter dør? I denne episode diskuterer vi stereotype portrætter af queer kvinder, mental sundhed og det berygtede døde lesbiske syndrom og hvilke alternative historier vi bør fokusere på i stedet. Vi talte med Caroline Osander, leder af PsykInfo og arrangør af filmfestivalen Frygt ikke The Weird, som har til formål at bryde og udfordre samfundets tabuer om mental sundhed. Bemærk venligst, at interviewet er på dansk, men at du kan finde tekster på dansk og engelsk på mixcopenhagen.dk.

It’s just great

The hosts are very well informed and passionated about films. Texugo the how they discuss the film tropes specifically in a queer perspective (I haven’t seen that before). I would definitely recommend!
