They say that every story has already been told before, but I’ve always felt like there must be a few stories left out there. Surely we have not scraped the bottom of the story-telling barrel. But I’m not so sure anymore. It could very well be true. I mean, the story of Gayniggers from Outer Space, for example, was told in Denmark, in 1992*, so, even that is off the table.
Gayniggers from Outer Space tells the story of a group of intergalactic homosexual black men from the planet “Anus” who discover the presence of female creatures on planet Earth. Using guns which shoot deadly rays, they proceed to eliminate females one by one from Earth, which ensures them the ecstatic gratitude of the previously oppressed male population. Before leaving the planet, they leave behind a “Gay Ambassador” to educate the Earthlings about their new way of life. Gayniggers from Outer Space begins as a black-and-white film, but later turns to color. According to Lindberg, this was a “dramatic special effect” to illustrate “the world being freed from vicious women.”
Obviously, that sounds great “on paper,” but you might be worried it would come off cheap and offensive when put to actual film. The only way to be sure is to check out the clips after the jump:
You know, at first I found the aggressive and unapologetic racism and homophobia at the core of this project to be offensive, but then I just got swept up in the powerful acting and beautiful storytelling. Just kidding. I didn’t! (Via FilmDrunk. Thanks for the tip, Edith.)
*1992?! Surely that must be a typo. I am quite certain that Gayniggers from Outerspace was made in 1892, when it would still have been considered entertaining or, at the very least, socially acceptable.
