Feel Like an OUTSIDER?

January 21, 2009
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.
