Film: Ahead of the Curve

LCR Pride Foundation has partnered with Together Films to bring you the story of one of the most influential women in lesbian history, who many people have never heard of – Franco Stevens.

With a fist full of credit cards, a lucky run at the horse track and chutzpah for days, Franco Stevens launched 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 the 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 work being led by queer Women of Color today. The film features Andrea Pino-Silva, Kim Katrin, Denice Frohman, Amber Hikes, Jewlle Gomeez, Melissa Etheridge, and Lea DeLaria, and the score is composed by the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello.

The film will be available to watch online anytime from Friday 4th June until Friday 18th June, with tickets available to purchase from today until Friday 18th June. 

Tickets cost £9.99 and 50% of all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to LCR Pride Foundation and its work supporting LGBT+ people in the Liverpool City Region. You can buy tickets from today right up to the 18th June
