Hand on the Pulse

Joyce Warshow's video profiles Joan Nestle, a self-described bad girl who established the Lesbian Herstory Archives in her apartment on New York's Upper West Side and later riled the feminist movement by championing erotic lesbian literature. Nestle inherited her political bent from her outspoken single mom (“In the 40s and 50s [other] mothers didn't talk about liking to fuck,” she brags). Warshow's admiration for Nestle is obvious: a key sequence shows the irrepressible archivist beaming as grand marshal of the 1999 pride parade in her hometown. 52 min.
