Kris cheats! She has two official recommendations this week. The first is Normal Heart, the 2014 movie based on the largely autobiographical play of the same name by Larry Kramer, detailing the rise of the AIDS epidemic from 1981-1984. Kris’s second recommendation is Nuclear Family, a documentary mini-series on HBO that follows the lives of two lesbians raising their children and the legal complications that ensue from the sperm donor.
Tara didn’t cheat, but she did something else this week: she changed her mind. She had all these notes for one recommendation, but pivots wildly to bring to you the lesbian fiction classic, Desert of the Heart by Jane Rule. There’s a deep history to his book, which revolves around queerness in the mid-20th century against the backdrop of Reno’s divorce industry.
