Miami is a city full of good looking people, great weather and fabulous beaches. The annual Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is under full swing, bringing some of the hottest queer films, documentaries and shorts to the forefront.
Now’s a great time to take a trip to the part of America that pokes into Latin culture.
Come dive with us into the pool of great queer movies as we talk with Kareem Tabsch, the festivals programming director.
This week they’re showing Outrage, the new documentary about outing closeted gay politicians, Little Ashes, a film starring the sexy Robert Patterson of Twilight as a bi curious Salvador Dali and Luchando, a documentary that looks at the life of Cuban prostitutes of all persuasions. Why is this the film to watch?
Many of the films of the festival we’re featuring here might sell out, so be sure to get your tickets in advance here. See you there!
Kareem has been involved with programming the festival for over seven years, and has his finger on the pulse of where we’re going as a community. What hot topics in gay cinema does he see in the coming years?
We also have a fascinating interview with filmmaker Juan Carlos Zaldívar, who escaped Cuba in a boat called the Party Girl. His new short, José Martí & I, examines the sexuality of Cuba’s beloved founding father, the political and cultural figure, José Martí.
Was José Martí gay? How is can two very different groups of people who hate each other love the same person?
