“Boston Springs A Fethival” season is in high gear as it trucks through to the end of April, and the oldest LGBTQ film festival in America is underway – it’s the 2017 edition of Wicked Queer – Boston LGBTQ Film Festival!
During the weekday schedules, there are fewer options for the fest, which is best, since people have to work before they attend in many cases.
Today only one film is on tap: Woman On Fire, a documentary following Brooke Guinan, the first openly transgender firefighter in New York City. She’s a third generation firefighter, with a boyfriend trying to find a way to tell his family that his girlfriend is a transgender woman. Why that would even matter is beyond me, but that’s my sensibilities talking; I”m sure for some people this is going to be a very difficult topic.
As in previous years, the Monday selection is screening at the Fenway Community Health Center; it is a free screening and begins at 6:30 PM. Directions can be found on the Wicked Queer website on the film description page linked above
Don’t forget, Wicked Queer will be just a part of our massive Boston Springs A Festival Double-Feature weekend shows over at Subject:CINEMA the weekend of May 20-21; a complete rundown of the festival and the films therein. You won’t want to miss that. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to check out Wicked Queer’s official web site for info on ALL The films, complete venue and ticket info, and more!
The film fun continues through April 9, at venues all over the Metro area – be sure to check in with eCinemaBoston every morning for each day’s lineup!
