7. TV: Two Spirits
Airing June 14 on the PBS series Independent Lens, Lydia Nibley’s moving documentary Two Spirits explores the brief life and brutal hate-crime murder of Fred Martinez, a 16-year-old Navajo viewed as a nádleehi (“one who is transformed”), a person with both masculine and feminine essences — a dual-gender trait ironically revered and respected in traditional Navajo culture. The film features music by Patti Smith and Navajo artists.
6. BOOK: Remembrance of Things I Forgot, Bob Smith
In gay writer-comedian and master storyteller Bob Smith’s hilarious and heartwarming second novel — a Proustian blend of sci-fi, autobiographical fiction, and political satire — a middle-aged comic book dealer travels in his physicist ex-boyfriend’s time machine to 1986, where he schools his younger self (“I’m you, only with less hair and problems you can’t imagine”) and attempts to stop George W. Bush from becoming president.
