In honor of Women’s History Month, the queer women-led cinema platform Revry is offering viewers a diverse slate of films with women serving as lead characters.
The streaming service curates free LGBTQ TV shows, movies, news, series, and music. Revry’s Co-founder, Alia J. Daniels, says one of the platform’s main goals is to uplift and support women in media.
“As a company that is co-founded by two women of color, we have always made sure that we’ve highlighted and honored queer women as a part of our mission,” Daniels said. “This March, we are excited to particularly highlight titles on Revry that honor the experience of Queer women, including and especially our trans sisters who for far too long haven’t received their full shine during these moments.”
Below we have a roundup of some of the films and shows available for viewers this month via Revry.
