About The Author

As a trailblazing queer media historian, activist and online pioneer Jenni Olson has been a longtime champion of LGBT film and filmmakers around the world. With her vast expertise on queer film history and contemporary LGBT media images she offers a unique perspective on how far we’ve come in terms of LGBT images (from the big screen to the small screen, to the computer screen)! Jenni Olson has been programming, researching, collecting, creating, and writing about lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) film since 1986 and is one of the world's leading experts on LGBT cinema history. In 1995, Jenni was one of the co-founders of PlanetOut.com, where she established the massive queer movie resource and database, PopcornQ and launched the first showcase for LGBT streaming media, the PlanetOut Online Cinema as well as founding the PlanetOut Short Movie Awards. She is also very proud to be co-founder of the Queer Brunch at Sundance; the annual LGBT event she created in 1998 has grown to become the largest queer party at the Sundance Film Festival. As a film collector and archivist Jenni’s historical movie trailer programs (including the ever-popular: Homo Promo which is now available on DVD) have been shown at film festivals around the world, as have her many short films and videos (Sometimes, Meep! Meep!, Blue Diary, Matzo Maidels, Blow Up, Sing Along San Francisco). Her debut feature film, The Joy of Life world premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and went on to play a pivotal role in renewing debate about the need for a suicide barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as garnering praise from critics and audiences around the globe for its unique storytelling style. In addition to her two decades of curatorial experience (including stints at the Minneapolis/St. Paul and San Francisco LGBT Film Festivals) Jenni has written extensively about LGBT film for such publications as The Advocate, Curve Magazine, Filmmaker Magazine, indieWIRE.com, PlanetOut.com and the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Her wildly entertaining coffee table tome, The Queer Movie Poster Book was a 2005 Lambda Literary Award nominee. Jenni continues to advise and assist filmmakers on a variety of projects as well as spearheading such continuing LGBT filmmaker resources as the WolfeQueerFestDirectory (http://lgbtfilmfestivals.wetpaint.com/) and the PQProfessionals Yahoo Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pqprofessionals/join). Jenni has done extensive work as a film programmer and public speaker, as well as serving on numerous film festival juries, grants panels and screening committees. She is also a founding member of the advisory board for Outfest’s Legacy Project for LGBT film preservation. Materials from her extensive personal archive of rare LGBT film prints have been utilized in many documentary film projects. She can be seen in several documentary films offering her perspectives on LGBT cinema history, most notably two documentaries on which she served as associate producer: Jodie: An Icon (a 1996 British Channel 4 exploration of Jodie Foster as an icon for lesbians) and more recently the IFC documentary, Fabulous! The Story of Queer Cinema. Jenni’s most recent short film, 575 Castro St. premiered at Sundance and the Berlinale in early 2009 and has been making the rounds on the film festival circuit — it can also be seen online at FilmInFocus.com. She is currently in development on a new feature called, The Royal Road: or Get Me Guinevere Turner.

In 2005 she received the Outfest Award for Outstanding Artistic Achievement, the NewFest Award for Best U.S. Screenplay and a commendation from the City and County of San Francisco in recognition of her groundbreaking experimental documentary, The Joy of Life. The San Francisco Film Critics Circle also honored her with the Marlon Riggs Award (awarded annually by to a member of the Bay Area film community for courage and innovation). More recently Jenni earned a spot (number 74 to be exact) on the TopHotButches.com list of the Top 100 Butches of 2009!
