Super Gay Movie Review of the Week: Cloudburst (2011)

cloudburstPlane tickets and online shopping are keeping me in the house this weekend (kidding…not kidding). So with a click on a mouse, I renewed my Netflix membership (which doesn’t count as shopping) and opened a new world of LGBT films.

Gearing up for my first taste of this year’s Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival tomorrow, I decided to watch some film festival darlings.

Of course, I picked the movie that I had been ignoring on Amazon Prime for the last two months (don’t judge me). I am so glad I did. I immediately fell in love with Cloudburst staring Olympia Dukakis, Ryan Douchette, and Brenda Fricker.

Cloudburst-2Plot Snapshot: After 30 years together, partners run off to Canada to after one’s overzealous family member tries to split them apart. Continue reading Super Gay Movie Review of the Week: Cloudburst (2011)

KRead: Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison (Not so #LGBT read)

orangeisthenewblackWait what?

If you (like myself) were gearing up for season two of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black by reading Piper Kerman’s memoir, “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison”…. eh…. don’t.

The memoir is NOT like the book in some very key ways, the biggest being, it’s not nearly as gay.

Plot Summary: 10 years after a whirlwind relationship with her drug dealing ex-girlfriend, Piper finds herself in federal prison, leaving life as she knew it and her fiancee at home.

CELEZBRITIES OUT AND ABOUT: Outfest Fusion LGBT People Of Color Film Festival – Opening Night Screening Of “Blackbird”

The reports are in and the 11th annual Outfest Fusion was a great success. Every year Outfest Fusion, showcases LGBT film by people of color. The festival features 30 short and feature-length films from around the world that reflect a wide array of LGBT stories and parties. Fusion gives participants an opportunity to see reflections of their own experience and to deepen their understanding of other LGBT communities of color. We are still very bitter that we didn’t attend but we figured a week was more than enough time to get over it.

The opening night boasted a screening of Patrik Ian Polk’s Blackbird. Check out some of the pictures below… we aren’t in any of them *side eye*

As you know one of our favorite segments each year is the Women’s Short Program.  While we wait with bated breath to see what is selected this year, we have to share one of @kristiweb‘s all time favorite lesbian short films. The Ten Rules. It was the short film that led to Logo’s freaking hilarious show Exes and Ohs.

For the 80s babies among us, it is very Clarissa Explains It All meets the L Word.
