Campy tribute to lesbian pulp fiction gets late-night staging at the Pocket

It was a love that dare not speak its name! …. until the Supreme Court gave it the OK in 2015. But long before marriage equality, pulp novels about “sinful” same-sex relationships provided the grist for many closeted fantasies. The regional premiere play The Beebo Brinker Chronicles celebrates that genre with a nod to lesbian novelist Ann Bannon with two late-night performances this week at Pocket Sandwich Theater. Don’t miss the scandal of the century!

Drag Racer Miss Fame glams up The Brick

Asian Film Fest features, as always, queer content

North Texas is lucky to have so many film festivals sharing this international medium in varied and unique ways, and while Q Cinema focuses on gay content, almost all feature some queer-friendly films, including the Asian Film Festival of Dallas, now in its 14th year. Among the entries of LGBT interest are the closing-night film, A Girl at My Door (pictured), Eat with Me, a ballet film (Ballerino) as well as a number of shorts. But check out all the offerings at this fun fest.
