We know what makes The
Boys in the Band a gay movie. But why is Mommie Dearest gay? Or Fight Club?
Or Jackass? On Wednesday, February
21, at 7:30 p.m. at the Egyptian Theatre, in collaboration with DIVA (Diverse
and Inclusive Visionary Artists), author and film journalist Alonso Duralde provides
a glimpse into how he crafted the list for his book, 101 Must-See Movies for Gay Men.
Through images and discussion,
Duralde will demonstrate that a movie can be considered “queer” without having
any specific homosexual content. Join Duralde as he discusses a broad range of
favorites including Boom!, Showgirls, Valley of the Dolls, The
Women, Tongues Untied, Dog Day Afternoon, Swoon, Female Trouble, Bound, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and many more. A reception will be held after
the event, sponsored by Absolut.
