Following his first highly successful documentary ‘How To Survive A Plague’ which deservedly won him an Oscar Nomination, filmmaker David France has now turned his attention to the mystery surrounding the death of legendary NY drag queen and activist Marsha P. Johnson for his sophomore movie. With the help of Victoria Cruz who was about to retire from the NY Anti-Violence Project, they try to get to the truth of what really happened to this stalwart of the Gay Liberation movement who was a central figure in the Stonewall riots.
queerguruis back in PTown, and barely a month married, we have become somewhat obsessed with the topic. So this is a trailer for three new videos that we are making over the next couple of weeks all about getting hitched in what we are calling the summer of love and marriage.
We’ll be talking to leading gay activist Evan Wolfson the founder of Freedom to Marry and about the new documentary about the behind the scenes story of how and others finally got the law changed. We’ll be reviewing a brand new movie due to be released called Do You Take This Man, and last but by no means we’ll be sitting down with Ilene Mitnick & Alli Baldwin the brains behind BridePride who are about to reveal all the exciting new plans for this summer’s biggest all-girl wedding ever .
It’s going to be the summer of love and marriage here in P Town, so be sure to follow queerguruhere and on PTV’s Channel 99.
Once in a blue moon when we are ploughing through our usual packed schedule of movies to review, we come across a wee gem that hails an extraordinary new talent that gets us more than a little excited. Discovering that this particular new find wrote, directed and starred in his first feature, but who is barely out of college, makes it all even more remarkable. Prom King, 2010 is already being hailed as one of the best new LGBT movies of 2017, and queerguru talked to its creator being hailed as the new wunderkind : Christopher Schaap. He is an old-fashion romantic in a young soul.
The interview via Facetime was filmed and edited by Roger Walker-Dack for “queerguru reports” for PTV’s Channel 99.
