)“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!
We have officially crossed the halfway point for this year’s fest, and we are now heading into the sunset days – its the fest’s final weekend of festivities, and there’s a LOT of great stuff to choose from.
Saturday is the busiest day this week thus far, with NINE different features and films to choose from, plus the closing night party (even though technically the fest doesn’t end until tomorrow…but all screenings are in the afternoon, and a “closing afternoon” party sounds donwright goofy…lol…). To make things easier, because of the volume of features and locations, we’re doing this today on a venue basis – click through on each entry below for more info on the film, ticketing info, and more!
