Muskegon GSA hosts Gay and Lesbian Film Festival

By |2018-01-16T10:17:51-05:00April 23rd, 2009|News|

The Muskegon Community College Gay-Straight Alliance is hosting their first-ever Gay and Lesbian Film Festival on April 25. The event, which features an afternoon session from 2-4 p.m. and an evening session from 7-9 p.m., will be held at the Harbor Theater at 1937 Lakeshore Drive in Muskegon.
Each session will consist of both a short and a full-length film.
The afternoon session will feature the 10-minute short “Dolls,” directed by Randy Caspersen. A coming-of-age story, the short tells the story of a garage sale that turns violent, forcing a mother to reluctantly come to terms with her teenage son’s sexuality. “Dolls” will be followed by “Equality U,” a documentary by Dave O’Brien about 34 young activists on the Soulforce Equality Ride.
The evening session’s short is “Will You…” by director Robert Gaston, a comedy about a woman who wants to propose to her girlfriend but can’t afford a ring. Enlisting the help of a male friend to pull of an elaborate hoax only makes matters worse as he focuses on a love interest instead of on their mission. “Will You…” is followed by the final film of the day, “Tru Loved,” a film by Stewart Wade about Tru, who moves from San Fransisco to a conservative town with her lesbian mothers – and finds it hard to adjust.
Both sessions will be a $6 admission and include a short discussion after the films.
