We owe a lot to Kathy Wolfe, because back in 1985 she brought to life what would become the largest exclusive distributor of lesbian, gay, bi and transgender movies.
As the company celebrates its 30th anniversary year they cementing their legacy through a donation to the June Mazer Lesbian Archives — depositing a complete DVD library of every lesbian film Wolfe has released since 1985.
The June L. Mazer Archives is the largest major archive on the West Coast dedicated to preserving and promoting lesbian and feminist history and culture.
They create a safe place for women to explore the richness of lesbian history and promote knowledge for future generations to understand more fully their own identity and history.
Wolfe’s donation is roughly 100 great lesbian movies; ranging from classics like Desert Hearts to more recent acclaimed hits like Mosquita & Mari, Reaching for the Moon, Kiss Me and the company’s newest release, Of Girls and Horses (by legendary lesbian director Monika Treut).
June Mazer Archives Board Chair Angela Brinskele.
We’re thrilled to have this incredible trove of lesbian films available to our researchers. We’re extremely grateful to Wolfe Video and founder Kathy Wolfe for this incredibly generous donation to our collection.”
All of the DVDs will be available for researchers at the archives.
Founder and CEO Kathy Wolfe added.
Supporting our community organizations has always been an important part of our work. Making all of our films available for researchers and historians is very exciting for us and we are truly grateful to the Mazer Archives for all the important work that they do.”
