Hello My Name is Lesbian
Goddag mit navn er Lesbisk
With refreshing self-irony the film takes us through lesbian life in Denmark from the 1950s to the present. Provocative animated sequences, extensive archive material and a dynamic soundtrack deliver a tour-de-force of lesbian love. We move from the secrecy of lesbian life in straight-laced Denmark in the 1950s to the gender-bending queer community and a nuclear family of three kids, two mums, and no dad. We meet straight-talking lebs at summer camps waging war on bras, make-up and men. We also meet Ena, the pro MC of Fagget Fairy doing battle with family prejudice and for the right to be herself. Women from 19 to 84 talk about sex, loneliness, love, gender roles, the family and parenthood.
