Women of Color who like Women of Color

This blog is for women of color interested in other women of color. This is a safe space for WOC and gender non-conforming POC. The primary point of this blog is for queer WOC to come together and share common interests that could perhaps lead to more. WOCWLWOC is a place to meet others like yourself, which may be difficult in your offline life. This blog operates much like GWLG, but current events and queer/feminist texts can also be shared, and it's highly encouraged. QTPOC are encouraged to submit as well.

hell yeah!

  • saving face - two chinese american women (thiS MOVIE IS MY FAVORITE I LOVE IT SO MUCH)
  • pariah - black american woman
  • mosquita y mari - brown chicanas
  • i can’t think straight - palestinian-jordanian woman and indian-british woman - i just watched this and was squealing the whole time

ppl just reminded me of/recommend these ones too:

  • yes or no - thai women, very silly movie!
  • the world unseen - indian-south african women

i haven’t seen any of these yet so i can’t vouch for their quality but:

  • blue - japanese film abt teenage lesbians!!
  • butterfly (hu die) - hong kong film based on the taiwanese novel the mark of the butterfly
  • nina’s heavenly delights - takes place in the uk, featuring a cast w/ a lot of indian-british characters although one of the protags is white 
  • fire - indian women
  • if she grows up gay - black american mother talks abt raising her child w/ her lesbian lover (cw: there’s a lot of discussion of rape in this film from what i’ve heard)
  • the watermelon woman - 1st feature film written by a black lesbian!  black american woman (features camille paglia so be careful bc she’s horrible)

Out in the Night trailer

Possible trigger warning for violence and sexual assault

A riveting documentary written, directed and produced by relative newcomer Blair Dorosh-Walther, Out in the Night serves as a potent wake-up call that even in gay-friendly areas like New York City, the LGBTQ community and people of color are still recklessly and harshly discriminated against. In a gross miscarriage of justice by an obviously prejudiced judge and jury, four African-American lesbians are slapped with stiff sentences for defending themselves against a man who was threatening them on the street.

Kumu Hina

The inspiring documentary, Kumu Hina, introduces us to Hina Wong-Kalu, a Hawaiian transgender woman embracing her cultural heritage in contemporary Honolulu as a respected teacher (or “kumu”), an active cultural council member, and a newlywed.

LESBIAN JUDGE WILL NOT WED STRAIGHT COUPLES
It’s nothing personal, but Dallas County judge Tonya Parker does not perform wedding ceremonies for heterosexual couples looking to tie the knot. What is her reason? The state of Texas, along with 30 other states, does not currently allow same-sex marriage. Despite recent victories in places like Oregon and Pennsylvania, many states are still in court over the issue leading this openly gay judge to politely turn away couples until marriage is equal.
In an interview with the Dallas Voice, Parker said ,“I’m sorry. I don’t perform marriage ceremonies because we are in a state that does not have marriage equality, and until it does, I am not going to partially apply the law to one group of people that doesn’t apply to another group of people.”
While some are outraged, many applaud Parker, pointing out that same-sex couples have been denied marriages for years and that this is just an ironic dose of how homosexuals are treated.
