'Below Her Mouth' Brings Lesbian Relationships To The Big Screen at TIFF 2016

Representation is key when it comes to marginalized communities and identities - I am a strong believer of this!

So when I met the women behind Canadian film "Below Her Mouth", I HAD to speak to them. Below Her Mouth is one of the boldest and sexiest dramas of the year, April Mullen's Below Her...
