It’s been two years since the all-female reboot of the 1984 movie Ghostbusters was announced and today the movie finally hits theatres. It’s the film that everyone’s got an opinion about and until today most of these opinions were completely based on speculation.

The post does a really good job of paying tribute to the queer lady fans she’s had for a (relatively) long time.
