Global Tragedies and Gay Rights

@2018 Jan Miller Corran It’s been many months since I’ve written an article for Epochalips.

The news is reporting ad nauseam on the hair style of the President, the poor shoe […]

Films Give Us Hope in a Chaotic World

In 1944 war raged across Europe. Turmoil reigned throughout the world and America lived in fear and sorrow as the stories of ethnic cleansing and city destruction became our newspaper headlines.

Both are filled with over 100 pages of film showings that take place in about a 10 day window of time. Last week I received the Frameline catalogue and joy of joys, two films I […]

Help Family Secrets Get Unveiled in ‘Louise’

In 1995 I became a filmmaker. Well, that is a stretch. I consulted on a documentary about dementia because I am a psychologist and gerontologist by background. The film went on to be nominated for an Academy Award and in my humble opinion, I helped get it there. Okay. Not so humble. It was around […]

Do Lesbian Celebrities Have a Right to Privacy?

There was a time in America when journalists and news reporters had an unwritten code of silence in regards to the personal lives of movie stars, candidates, presidents and their wives. There was a time in America when we all seemed to know the truth about public figures, but we didn’t bring it to prominence […]

A Long Lost Lesbian Daughter

In 2010 I started watching Lisa Kudrow’s PBS show “Who Do You Think You Are?”. As an adopted person, I was suddenly awakened to the desire to figure out who I am. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adored my parents. If there is an adoptive lottery, I won the multi-million dollar mega-millions. So, […]

What Watching Lesbian Films Taught Me

What Watching Lesbian Films Taught Me

Acknowledging ones lesbianism is not like smacking yourself on the head and saying, “gee, I could’ve had a V-8”.  For some of us its that gnawing feeling that you know you just aren’t like the rest of the girls who giggled and pined over the high school quarterback.  You pined over the homecoming queen. You […]
