The LGBTQ Resource Center at Gulfport Public Library is proud to continue its monthly LGBTQ Film Series on Thursday, July 13th with HURRICANE BIANCA, a “ridiculous and silly, but ultimately very fun comedy” (junkee.com). This is a free gathering to watch a film in the company of friends and neighbors on the second Thursday of each month. Popcorn, candy, bottled water and soda are available. Donations will be accepted to benefit the LGBTQ Resource Center. Feel free to bring your own “brown bag” supper and beverages.
Each film begins at 7pm in the Friends Room at Gulfport Public Library (5501 28th Avenue South). Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
About HURRICANE BIANCA: Just in time for storm season! A “broad comedy,” HURRICANE BIANCA stars wise-cracking RuPaul’s Drag Race season six winner Bianca Del Rio (Roy Haylock), as school teacher Richard, fired from his job in a small Texas town after community members discover he is gay. He returns “in disguise” as his drag persona Bianca to wreak havoc on those who have discriminated against him. Also starring Rachel Dratch, Alan Cumming, Margaret Cho, Lola Botha and RuPaul. (Not rated)
Save the date for the next film in the monthly series, CLOSET MONSTER, on Thursday, August 10th. In this independent Canadian film, a closeted Newfoundland teen named Oscar (Connor Jessup) dreams of becoming a special-effects makeup artist, and is terrified of his macho father finding out the truth about his sexuality. When Oscar falls for Wilder (Aliocha Schneider), a handsome and worldly co-worker at the hardware store, he is forced to confront his fears.
Watch for announcements of other films as they are added to the series on the second Thursday of each month.
