Know Your LGBT History - Reflections in a Golden Eye

Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away this week, was a gay icon. There is no doubt about that. However between you and me, I wish she had the opportunity to be in more lgbt positive movies.

The two movies she starred which featured lgbt portrayals weren't exactly positive. One was Suddenly Last Summer (1959) and the other was this monstrosity, Reflections in A Golden Eye (1967).

In Reflections in A Golden Eye, she portrayed the overly amorous wife of an Army captain (Marlon Brando). It is a movie about lust, and repression (Brando's character is a repressed gay man lusting after an army soldier (Robert Forester) who is fond nude horseback riding.)

Not one of my favorites:

NOM may have gobs of money, but we have truth on our side. The problem is that we need to push this truth more. Point blank - we need more videos like this and we need these videos to be seen by as many people as possible.
