All hail the Watermelon Woman!


I just re-watched Cheryl Dunye's 1996 classic, The Watermelon Woman, and want to urge everybody who hasn't seen it to drop whatever they're doing and rent it right now. The scene in which the main character visits a lesbian archives (which also features an appearance by writer Sarah Schulman) is hilarious and not to be missed. Good thing the CLGA makes things a little easier for our researchers!
One caveat: this movie serves as a somewhat terrifying stroll down Fashion Memory Lane for those of us who may have at one point worn cut-off jean shorts, so don't say I didn't warn you.
