DescriptionThis compelling and beautifully made documentary tells the life story of Blue Lunden, a lesbian/ feminist peace activist who found herself run out of New Orleans during the 1950s for wearing men's clothes. The homophobia she experienced only fuelled this passionate working class woman to live a lifetime of furious and funny protest. An odyssey of personal transformation paralleling the changing roles of lesbian lives over the last 40 years. 'This is a film that will help us remember what me must not forget'. Joan Nestle, Lesbian Herstory Archive.
