People like me don’t have stamps (QR 081)

April 23, 2024

It’s tax season at Queerly Recommended and Kris and Tara are comparing notes (and stamps!). Kris also talks about her upcoming trip to Earp Division Expo and Tara shares about a recent trip to Vancouver.

Official Recommendations

From Kris: Maestro (2023)

This week, Kris recommends Maestro (2023), the Bradley Cooper-directed feature film about American composer Leonard Bernstein and his wife Felicia Montealegre. Kris was especially taken by how completely Bradley Cooper disappeared into the role and the emotions of the storytelling.

From Tara: Dulhaniyaa by Talia Bhatt

This week, Tara recommends the sapphic romance Dulhaniyaa by Talia Bhatt. It’s about how Esha, an American-raised Indian woman, is pressured into learning a special dance for her wedding to a man she’s never met and falls for her dance instructor, Billu, instead.

Tara adored this book, describing it as an amazing translation of a Bollywood film into a book. You should definitely check out a few Bollywood romance films before reading this one to truly understand the achievement that was made with this book.
