This feature documentary delves into the rich history of Canadian queer women’s experiences in the mid-20th century. Compelling, often hilarious and always rebellious, the women interviewed in this film recount stories about their search for the places where openly gay women gathered in urban centres. Contemporary interviews, archival footage, and a stylized fictional narrative based on the pulp novels of the 1950s are woven throughout this simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and empowering film. Forbidden Love brings an important and empowering history of lesbian sexuality in Canada out of the closet.

    Very good can be seen on you tube in a short extract. Actresses names should be listed. Otherwise charming.

    Vin Packer's real name is Marijane Meaker who besides being Patricia Highsmith's Ex Girlfriend who wrote The Price Of Salt/Carol. In later years she wrote Deliver Us From Evie as well as Gentlehands as M.E. Kerr. Marijane also helped Ann Bannon (Odd Girl Out) get into the "Game". In those days there was never to be a happy ending, they didn't want folks to think Same Sex Love was okay.

    Moving and revealing, I have to agree men are really fucked up and the way the world is today is largely due to this enigma.
