Five documentaries to watch during Lgbt History Month

3 October 2011 11:00 AM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

October is Lgbt History Month, which means it's a great excuse to celebrate all of the queer women who came before you. Like you could watch tonight's episode of The Playboy Club to see Colbie Callait play Lesley Gore, the '60s pop star who came out as a lesbian years later.

So if you're now saying "Wow, lesbians existed in the '60s!?" you should watch some of these documentaries of people starring as themselves. Here are films you can track down to revel in your Lgbt herstory this month (and forever after).

If you want a love story, watch:

Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement

Two women discuss their relationship that spanned 42 years and the socio-political climate they lived in throughout.

If you want a love story that's also highly political:

No Secret Anymore

This film is not only the story of Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon's partnership, »
