Ahead of the Curve
In 1990, with a fist full of credit cards, a lucky run at the horse track and chutzpah for days, Franco Stevens launched Deneuve, changed later as Curve, the best-selling lesbian lifestyle magazine ever published. Ahead of the Curve traces the power of lesbian visibility and community from the early ‘90s to present day through the story of Franco’s founding of Curve magazine. Decades later, as her legacy faces extinction and she reassesses her life after a disabling injury, she sets out to understand visibility work being led by an intersection of queer women today. Featuring Andrea Pino-Silva, Kim Katrin, Denice Frohman, Amber Hikes, Jewelle Gomez, Melissa Etheridge, and Lea DeLaria, and a score composed by the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello, Ahead of the Curve celebrates the legacy of a movement while considering the agenda of its future.
