Jen Richards speaks out against Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer’s new film, Anything, in which (another) cis man plays a trans woman.
How did I, a girl growing up in 1970s New York City, relate to a drama about two women who fall in love during WWI? And, why has it remained with me for 40 years?
It’s wonderful to see two queer women dealing with complex and honest relationship problems that are treated with the same nuance and depth as those of the straight couples on screen, but DuVall never quite manages to step out of the shadow of The Big Chill.

A point by point breakdown comparing plots, outfits, closing credits and everything in between.

I may be extrapolating, but I am pulling my theories from very real, very present stuff. This is basically science, y’all.
Jillian Holtzmann’s queer sex appeal is lethal.
“The entire ‘Ghostbusters’ legacy is what’s at stake here.”
“And don’t act like womans are better than males. It’s tied between the two so stop please.”
First Girl I Loved doesn’t reach the heights it aspires to, but it’s so much better than the sad (and just plain bad) movies we’re used to seeing about queer teens.
You can swoon and you can laugh and you can open yourself up to the white hot agony and ecstasy of hope because the people who created this movie see you, they know you, they are you.
“That’s some Garnier Fructis hair.”
