Thefabulousallancarr-poster-1“He had a career that had these wild swings from huge successes to miserable failures. He was somebody who really went for it.

Pride Month: Fenton Bailey & Randy Barbato — Class Is In Session! Comments (0)

Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato founded their now world-famous World of Wonder production company in 1991, taking on a slew of documentaries, FentonBaileyRandy_Feb2004reality TV and scripted films.

The onetime couple — they have described their journey as de-merging from romantic, never wavering creatively — and longtime best friends are responsible for some 1,600 TV episodes and series you know and love or know and hate or hate to love or love to hate or know you love: Tori & Dean: Inn Love (2007-2012), the Million Dollar Listing franchise (2006-) and so many more.

The films of Bailey and Barbato represent a peculiarly queer perspective, one so badly needed in an arena where people are coming up with ideas like remaking shitty Brendan Fraser mummy movies starring shitty Tom Cruise. If you've never seen their The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2000) about the late televangelist-turned-LGBTQ alley Tammy Faye Bakker Messner, do; and their Party Monster (2003), about the murderer Michael Alig, is an early '00s must.

On Sunday, June 11, Bailey and Barbato's Menendez: Blood Brothers, a smart, stylish look back at the notorious Menendez Brothers slayings, airs on Lifetime (my review here).

FINDING KIM — A New Doc On The Trans Experience Comments (0)

Kimtoday(Image & video still via Random Media)

Finding Kim is a new doc on the trans experience that follows the transition of Kim, who desperately wants to feel at Transgenderpeace with his body in time to be a 50-year-old man instead of a 50-year-old woman.

From the press release:

Fifty-year-old Kim has made a decision. A decision a lifetime in the making: transitioning to a man. Join him through the fearful, powerful, freeing journey of which he’s only dreamed. Witness the entire process including top surgery, navigating friendships and the torment of what to tell one’s family. Watch Kim’s joy as he experiences life the way he always felt he should: as a happy, confident, human being. Captured by documentary filmmakers Aaron Bear and Gabriel Bienczycki, Finding Kim is a journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. Set in the backdrop of progressive Seattle, this film features insights, advice and real-life experience from Dan Savage, Carmen Carrera, Calpernia Addams, Buck Angel and more.

Looks like a great way to teach people how bottom surgery works and about being trans without having to ask every trans person they meet rude questions!

Finding Kim is on Digital and VOD June 6.

Keep reading to watch the trailer ...
