Ahead Of The Curve traces the power of lesbian visibility and community from the early ‘90s to the present day through the story of Curve magazine. With a lucky run at the track and chutzpah for days, Franco Stevens launched Curve, the best-selling lesbian magazine ever published. When Franco learns that Curve is failing, she turns to today’s queer activists to determine her path forward. What made Curve (first published in 1990 as Deneuve) ahead of its time wasn’t just the radical choice to print “lesbian” on the cover next to out and proud figureheads such as Melissa Etheridge, Wanda Sykes and k.d. lang, Curve was filled with diverse, unapologetic images and stories that radiated community and dignity from cover to cover, so that it quickly became a cornerstone of lesbian culture.
The Eclectic Cinema has acquired a copy of the April 2009 issue of Curve, featuring Katy Perry on the cover. Offers are welcome for this collectors' item!
