5 Queer Movies To Watch On Netflix Over Break

1. Bridegroom

It's a great documentary showcasing the struggles of legal rights given or not given to life partners.

2. Tangerine

Written, directed, and starring trans women of color, Tangerine is an extremely important movie to see and support. It was all shot on a smart phone but still created a full length film. This was an independent film clearly, but there are many mainstream transgender stories being told right now, just by cis-het white men.

Here's Mya Taylor giving her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Female at the 2016 Film Independent Spirit Awards,

3. Blue is the Warmest Color

Ah, yes. Blue is the Warmest Color is infamous for its extremely long lesbian sex scenes. Are they too long, maybe, I shouldn't be the judge, but the relationship and story the movie tells is real and beautiful in its honesty. But yes, the sex scenes are long...

4. Pariah

Pariah is a powerful movie, again finding honesty and truth in it's story.

5. Other People

Look, I love Molly Shannon. She is heartbreaking in this and while it maybe one of the funnier movies on this list, it's still about a mother dying of cancer. I don't know why all these comedians are doing dark independent films (The Skeleton Twins, I Smile Back), but I want more.


Just go watch Queer as Folk already, you're welcome.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
