        "This Ed Wood classic is very strange and unlike any other movie, which is maybe why it can be recommended. It pleads for tolerance is its own weird way, as it deals with cross-dressing and other contemporary issues. While not a "good" film by any means, it is it's own thing and has a lot of entertainment value, which, after all, is why people watch movies in the first place."

        "As a graduate from liberal arts and gender studies, Glen or Glenda was a haphazard attempt to explore gender and sexuality. Given that Ed Wood directed this film, expect a poorly-written and crazy film. But I respect him for his attempt to represent the LGBTQ since they were oppressed at that time."
