‘Get Out’ And See A Movie This Week

by Chris Narloch

Disney’s big budget, live-action movie version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ recently opened, and I urge you to see the film, if only to support that beloved, family-friendly company’s decision to hire an openly gay director and allow him to turn one of the movie’s minor characters gay.

That decision led a drive-in theater in Alabama to refuse to show the film, and the Russian and Malaysian governments have also reportedly considered boycotting the movie.

San Francisco Community Commemorates Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31

A group of community organizations, led by the Trans Employment Program of the SF LGBT Center and Trans:Thrive at the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Wellness Center will host a free community-wide event to commemorate Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31 at SOMArts.

TDOV is an annual celebration around the world dedicated to lifting the accomplishments and victories of transgender & gender non-conforming (GNC) people while raising awareness of the work that is still needed to save trans lives. The celebration was started in 2009 as a response to the lack of LGBT celebrations focused on transgender and GNC people's successes.

by Colt McGraw, March 8, 2017

Alex Lawther (“The Imagination Game”) stars in Andrew Steggall's newest gay drama, ‘Departure,’ which was released on DVD on March 7, 2017.  

The film opens with Lawther's character, Elliot, asking "Do you think you can know something, before you know it?"  This is prompted by unspoken truths that unfold as the film evolves.  You see a family fractured by forbidden desires and attached by social norms and expectations.
