As for the rest of the fest, it continues at the Hollywood Theater (4122 NE Sandy Blvd).

From five time writer/director Rob Williams (Make The Yuletide Gay, 3-Day Weekend, Back Soon and Long-Term Relationship) comes a story of the A-list gays and all their troubles. Video editor Mike Justice will be on hand to answer questions after the screening.

While hiding out from the paprazzi at a secluded Palm Springs resort, recently outed Soap opera star, Graham Winsdor (Steve Callahan), and a recently divorced gay marriage activist Trey Reed (Matthew Montgomery) find themselves kindred spirits. These hard workin’ men find passion in expressing their professional pitfalls and compel one another to confront the firestorm that their relative scandals have wrought.

7:30pm @ Hollywood Theater – The Secret Diaries of Anne Lister

Known as the “the first modern lesbian” Anne Lister was a wealthy and scandalous heiress and traveler in 19th century England who kept scintillating diaries of her female conquests as well as the loss of her one true love.

Hidden behind a wall in the family mansion for over a hundred years this encrypted, four-million-word diary was uncovered in the 1980s and took 6 years to decode. In true British form, the BBC takes these descriptive passages such as, “Yet my manners are certainly peculiar, not all masculine but rather softly gentleman-like. I know how to please girls,” and turn them in a sexy, silly, and dramatic screen rendition not unlike Tipping the Velvet.
