2ND ANNUAL HOUSTON GAY & LESBIAN FILM FESTIVAL

May 29 – Screening – This evening of video shorts explores love and its difficulties – race, class, family, violence, and language in gay male relationship. Just Another Love Story (1991 – 1996) is a collection of work by John Lindell, touted by the Village Voice as “conceptual art tour de force.” Thick Lips, Thin Lips (1994) uses a kiss between an Asian and an Afro-Caribbean male as a focus for racial and homophobic violence. In Dark Sun, Bright Shade (1993), filmmaker Kwoi uses the turmoil of Tien An Men Square to echo one man’s inner conflict between East and West, father and son, friend and lover.  

May 30 – QUAC Mix-Up Video! – an evening of experimental queer video. 

May 31 – Pride Divide (Docu-Video) – Humorously and frankly examines the hidden gender gap permeating gay and lesbian life since the homophile movement began in the 1940’s. Includes dialogues from: Kate Clinton, Barney Frank, Michael Musto, Torie Osborn, Camille Paglia, Michelango Signorile and many others.
