Things are a bit more busy today, with four offerings around the Hub.  As always, click on the title for ticket info, descriptions from the Wicked Queer festival website:

Freelancers Anonymous,  Brattle Theatre, 6:30  PM: program is billed as a “sneak preview”:

Billie #hatesherjob and quits mere months before getting married. She meets a ragtag group of women also looking for employment, and finds herself juggling her upcoming wedding with launching a new tech start-up.

BPM (Beats Per Minute), Arts/Emerson Paramount Center,  7 PM; co-presented by The French Cultural Center

In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal life-or-death urgency. Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, the newcomer Nathan (Valois) falls in love with Sean (Biscayart), the group’s radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough.

Men’s Shorts: Right in Front Of Our Eyes. Remis Auditorum @ Museum Of Fine Arts, 8:30 PM

Includes the shorts Vertical Lines, Cupid Prefers A Sniper Rifle, Foreign Lovers, Neptune, The Quiet Room, THE SHIT! (An Opera), and Just Past Noon On A Tuesday.

Trisha, a Filipino transgender woman, suddenly dies while being crowned in a beauty pageant. Her last wish was to be presented as a different celebrity on each night of her wake.
