Amy Ashenden’s documentary is now available online for free. The Gay Word focuses on the recent trend of using the word ‘gay’ negatively to mean things are bad, ‘uncool’ or embarrassing, examining if its use is homophobic or an evolution of language.
A University of Southampton graduate and freelance journalist for the Guardian, Ashenden self-produced and edited this documentary, travelling across south east England and interviewed a range of people. The film has received very positive feedback and sold out screenings across the country, including its screening at Exeter’s Glorious Art House in October.
