When lesbians and other gay and straight fans of stories involving two women in love want to read their favorite stories, they don’t go to the major bookseller chains. More and more frequently, they turn to the Internet, where they can find independent booksellers and fan fiction archives. When those same people want to see similar material on television, they don’t go to the big screen in their entertainment center. (Not unless they enjoy punishment.) They go to the Internet too, and one of the sites they visit is Tellofilms.com. Founded in 2008, Tellofilms is sort of like a Youtube for lesbians, as members are encouraged to post original films, webisodes, and other visual material for others to see. Its success can be measured by the over 700 different videos that can currently be seen there, and by the new and improved website that was just launched. I’ll be speaking with Christin Baker and Nicole Valentine, who first came up with the idea for Tellofilms three years ago, and run the site to this day.
