Queer Feminist Filmmakers

Dear Reader,

Avant-garde filmmaker Barbara Hammer died earlier this month. She was a pioneer lesbian filmmaker and a mentor who will be missed by many people. Barbara was a member of this mailinglist and I send much love to her whereever she is now.

Housekeeping. I have been tinkering with the Feminine Moments website, creating a new version of  the Lesbian Fine Arts Links which originally was the core of my first website. Feminine Moments' links archive have now just got a tab which reads 'Resources'. I invite new queer women artists to contact me. And in case your website by mistake is not included in the links section do let me know.

Love and kisses,
