With a lucky run at the track and chutzpah for days, Franco Stevens launched Curve, the best-selling lesbian magazine ever published. When Franco learns that Curve is failing, she turns to today’s queer activists to determine her path forward. Available to rent on QFT Player.

From filmmakers Jen Rainin (Director & Co-Producer) and Rivkah Beth Medow (Producer & Co-Director), 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 Colour 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.
