Pulse Orlando Survivors, Boston Pride benefit

Boston Pride

Tuesday’s benefit has been postponed – More details will follow

Organizers are fundraising to accommodate 32 of the survivors from the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando who have indicated they would like to travel to Boston Pride later this summer to celebrate Pride one year after the horrible tragedy which resulted in 49 people being murdered  and 53 wounded.

To make this a reality a Go Fund Me page was set up.  The benefit originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 18th at Club Cafe has been postponed but more details will follow shortly. In the interim share the Go Fund Me link with friends to help raise funds to bring these survivors to Boston for a weekend celebrating Pride: Go Fund Me page.

Little did we know at the time that January and February would be more mild than the start of our spring.

The Boys in the Band: Flashpoints of Cinema, History and Queer Politics

Matt Bell, gay studies, lgbt studiesA week ago I published a blog post asking for book suggestions so imagine my surprise when a professor from a local university who happens to live in my neighborhood reached out to let me know about a book he has collaborated, edited and recently published called, The Boys in the Band’: Flashpoints of Cinema, History, and Queer Politics.

Inspired by the play / movie, this book includes a collection of essays on the 1970 film “The Boys in the Band” that would be of interest to those interested in queer studies and film.  For those who may have never had a chance to see this groundbreaking film, I’d suggest you consider streaming it.

Popular gay novel “call me by your name” coming to theaters this fall

Andre Aciman, gay literature, LGBT novelLast week I asked for some book suggestions and as always happens when I put out such a request Call Me By Your Name  was suggested. This is one of my favorite gay-themed novels so imagine my surprise when one of the people who left a comment said that the book is being made into a movie.

Elio the young man that the book centers on is played by Timothée Chalamet and the American graduate student who moves in with Elio’s family for the summer, Oliver, is played by Armie Hammer. If you are unfamiliar with the book, I would highly recommend reading it and then keep an eye out for the movie which according to IMDB will open in late November 2017.

GoFundMe for Pulse Orlando survivors to spend Pride in Boston

Boston PrideOn June 12, 2016, a terrorist traveled to Orlando and targeted members of our community.  The result was the worst mass shooting in US history; 49 murdered in cold blood and 53 others horribly wounded, fearing for their lives.

Boston based LGBT advocates and organizations want to open our arms, envelop these amazing individuals, and honor the brave survivors throughout the weekend of Boston Pride, June 9-12, 2017 but to do so they need your help so a GoFundMe page has been set up, seeking donations.
