When lesbian lifestyle magazine Curve (orginally called Deneuve) came on to the scene in the early 90s, queer culture had not quite begun its ascent into mainstream popular culture. We hadn’t reached peak lesbian cool yet with the now famous Vanity Fair cover of Cindy Crawford seductively ‘shaving’ k.d. lang, nor had we met and become hooked on the glamorous power lesbians of The L Word. Curve founder Frances ‘Franco’ Stevens started the magazine as a way to pull herself out of the remnants of a sham marriage and the financial hole in which it left her, and ultimately to document the vibrant lesbian scene that was thriving around her. Featuring queer icons such as Melissa Etheridge and comedian Lea DeLaria, Ahead of the Curve is an immensely entertaining look at one of the cornerstones of lesbian culture and a fascinating document of the role it played in shaping lesbian identity.
