|Description of Submission: "An essay examining the legendary directory John Schlesinger and his contribution to gay cinema." - Aaron
Why Karen and Melody Liked It: We really liked the history of the gay cinema that Aaron gave us. We had no idea that there was such a rich history, although not always positive, in gay cinema! The essay had many interesting details. As well we agree with Aaron and hope that the future of gay cinema will grow and expand more.
