Dallas Pride: OutTakes Dallas movie event tonight at Texas Theatre

Make a Pit Stop in Oak Cliff

As you might have read, queer filmmaker Yen Tan is hard at work on his next project Pit Stop. After the success of his film Ciao, Tan focuses again on the community with his latest film about two men who find romance in each other in a small Texas town. The film is still in the works but he gives a sort of preview tonight with staged readings from the script as well as showing clips from Ciao. He teams with OutTakes Dallas for tonight’s movie launch event in Oak Cliff. The night will also feature a conversation with Tan and producer Eric Steele.

This is an official Dallas Pride 2011 event.

DEETS: Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson St. 7:30 p.m. Free. OutTakesDallas.com.

Watch: Clips From BBC Documentary on Gays In Uganda

Bbc1
As reported earlier this week, British radio DJ Scott Mills visited Uganda recently to film a documentary about homosexuality in Uganda called The Worst Place to Be Gay?

Bbc2Mills risked his life when, during an interview, he revealed to David Bahati, the author of that country's "Kill the Gays" bill, that he is gay. The film airs tonight on BBC Three but two compelling clips are now available for viewing.

The first is a two-minute clip of an interview with anti-gay Pentecostal church pastor Solomon Male who insists on telling Mills what he believes the penis and the anus should be used for.

The other is a clip of Mills participating in a ritual with a witch doctor to see if he can turn him straight. It's a long (and filthy) way to go about proving that it doesn't work.

Watch both clips, AFTER THE JUMP.
