    Occasionally unsure of itself, periodically confusing, but constantly beautiful.

    The Candyman is the killer of white evil and I love him for it.

    My favourite scene was when Elton and everyone in the Troubadour supped Willy Wonka's fizzy lifting drink during Crocodile Rock

    ‘all gender glory hole’ will be the name of the lgbt pub I open in 15 years. 

    a triumph.

    the constant and nuanced pain of tweenhood was portrayed perfectly in this film.

    when i cried for kayla i felt i was also crying for the timid lonely kid i was who made youtube videos for the 34 subscribers i had, and trying to be someone else for the popular kid and being absolutely pained about everything.

    this film displays girlhood in the most raw, real way, from the perspective of the girl - the girl who is often subject to the gaze and scrutiny and control of any man or boy as soon as puberty hits.
