Robert Roth

Robert is a working class queer nerd overthrowing the capitalist patriarchy one wry comment at a time. Besides volunteering as editor and publisher of Queerspace Magazine, he’s a writer, designer, illustrator, photographer, and filmmaker. He’s a lifelong gaymer, and is old enough to remember when RPGs only came with paper and dice.

Playing it Straight: Where are the Queer Actors in Queer Stories?

Playing it Straight: Where are the Queer Actors in Queer Stories?

To call out the obvious lip service that the entertainment industry pays to its desperate need for more representative inclusion seems redundant, and yet, the more things change, the more they stay the same. When it comes to inclusion, Hollywood still has a homophobia problem.

Call Me When It’s Over

Call Me When It’s Over

While Call Me By Your Name is a beautifully crafted piece of cinema, its story is ultimately empty and unfulfilling, and would’ve better served as a 20 minute video tour of Northern Italy. Combined with such problematic casting, it makes for a story that just didn’t need to be told.

A Frank and Fabulous Looking Freak Show

A Frank and Fabulous Looking Freak Show

As with a lot of its indie, queer film cousins, the strength of a movie like Freak Show lies in its heart. Based on the young adult novel of the same name by former club kid and current World of Wonder bon vivant James St. James, it’s an earnest story that makes up for its lack of surprises with a star studded cast and an excellent performance from The Imitation Game’s Alex Lawther.
