More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Feel Like an OUTSIDER?
Queer Lounge hosted a panel this morning entitled, "The Outsiders: Forming Identities from the Margins." It was a fascinating hour, moderated by Kyle Buchanan, film critic for The Advocate, and featured Mary Jane Sklaski and David Brind (Dare), Lee Daniels and Gabourey Sidibe (Push) and Steve Kelly (City Rats).
These three LGBT-inclusive films address a feeling of "otherness," a theme which many gay films posses. The panelists are all incredibly lively and have great stories to tell. A particular highlight involves dish on Mariah Carey, who delivers a (surprisingly?) strong performance in Push: Based on the novel by Sapphire. Look for it in Part Three of the video below.
