Kansas City Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

I hinted Tuesday about a fabulous new project... aren't you just giddy with antici--pation? ;)

I know I'm quite giddy about this!! I was selected to be a program assistant for this year's Kansas City Gay and Lesbian Film Festival! And I even get to help curate the Short Film Competition. How cool is that?!

The Kansas City Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is June 24 - 30th this year. All of the movies and shorts will be shown at the Tivoli Cinema in Westport.

Some of the movies we'll be showing include:
Fishnet - a lesbian camp comedy about 2 burlesque dancers who stir up trouble in a small town

Fishnet - Official Trailer

Wish Me Away - a documentary about country singer Chely Wright's coming out.

Wish Me Away
