"Dramedy" is the only word that fits Rodney Evans’ slice of 20-something life in New York City. "The Happy Sad," based on screenwriter Ken Urban’s own stage play, plays it straight... so to speak... but the material is essentially comic.

The making of Family Restaurant, a short film for kids with LGBT parents by Andrea James

The making of Family Restaurant, a short film for kids with LGBT parents by Andrea James | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

Longtime friend and Boing Boing contributor Andrea James has just completed a Kickstartered short film for children from LGBT families. I saw it this week, and was blown away by how funny and sweet it was. I know how hard she's worked on this; a true labor of love. I hope kids (and grown-ups) far and wide have a chance to experience both the art and the message. For readers in the SF Bay Area, there's a screening on Sunday June, 2013 in the Frameline LGBT film festival at San Francisco's Castro Theatre. Andrea writes in to Boing Boing with the backstory.

You Should Go: NewFest in New York City! It's An LGBT Film Festival!

You Should Go: NewFest in New York City! It's An LGBT Film Festival! | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

NewFest, New York's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Film Festival, holds a special place in my heart, and not just because it was the very first event I ever covered in my Autostraddle career. It also holds a special place in my heart because it's consistently wonderful. NewFest showcases amazing films by queer film-makers with LGBT representation in their characters and plots, and this year is definitely no different. In partnership with OutFest in Los Angeles and Film Society Lincoln Center, the festival will run Friday, September 6th through Wednesday, September 11th, with a lineup of 15 narrative features, 4 documentaries, 31 shorts and other special events.
