What makes Lesflicks unique is our holistic all-round approach of supporting filmmakers, promoting films, holding socials, and investing into film.

We love to collaborate and hear from people from all walks of life from creatives to film fans. We are a volunteer-driven social enterprise so we work with many wonderful people and kind souls that make up our team, but there are a few core team members who keep the cogs turning.

Meet Naomi

Naomi is taking her existing knowledge of the community and combining this with her experiences and passion around film. Naomi is the one with the grand ideas! Nothing is impossible… she is dedicated to film, women, and getting film to women! Naomi has spent the better part of her adult life trying make sure us queer women are getting the representation we rightfully deserve, both through Lesflicks and previously through Planet London/Planet Nation. Her extensive collection of lesbian interest films on DVD should tell you that, if her wonderful pride-themed rainbow eyeshadow doesn’t already.

Naomi is unable to choose her favourite film – it’s like choosing your favourite child!

Writing Team

Meet Abeer

Abeer is the Founder & Creative Director at Allanzcom.com. She is a Published Author, Content Producer, and a Communications Specialist who has been interviewing people and writing their stories for more than a decade.

She travelled different parts of the world, and had the opportunity to meet with locals, refugees, and expats to document their stories as part of different projects. These stories talk about pain, trauma, sexual orientation, LGBT, rape, body image, FGM, being a refugee, and a lot more.

Favorite Movie: I Can’t Think Straight. The cross-cultural romance, the intellectual conversations among characters, and the humor injected into the scenes to reflect the differences between generations and cultures, all kept me captivated to watch this movie again and again, and again!
