Filmmaker MARCO CALVANI talks about his debut feature film HIGH LINE a queer love story in PTown

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,

 

Some 18 months ago Italian/American queer filmmaker Marco Calvani unexpectedly found himself staying in Provincetown for 6 months in the off season. This is the time of year when this gay mecca at the tip of Cape Cod, is completely empty of all the summer tourists and has a full time population of just 3000 souls. Its when Calvani fell in love …… with the town that is …. and the result is that he ended up writing/directing High Tide his debut feature film.

I’m not sure how Calvani pulled it off but for a small budget feature (shot in just 14 days) with some remarkable performances, with an exceptional one from the remarkably talented Marco Pigossi, (the actual real-life BF of Calvani) the real star is Provincetown.

Queerguru caught up with Calvani and actor James Bland when he was in Ptown for the film’s World Premiere to get  all the lowdown.  The interview was filmed by Dan Desjardins

Drew Sebastian is a man who wears many hats ….. one of which means he actually wears nothing at all. His first love was musical theater, he trained at Cordon Bleu School and became a chef to a few famous folks (think Adam Levine etc) and in the Covid Lockdown he was a much sought-after Personal Trainer …. and for many years he has been a major star of adult films. It is a career he is mighty proud of….. and quite rightly so … and one of which he shares stories about ….. some of them hilarious ….in his one-man show DAD’S CABARET that he is about to perform at the Pilgrim House in Provincetown.

Queerguru caught up with him to talk about his new life as a sexy cooner on the eve of him losing his PTown (professional ) virginity

Amy Jo Jackson talks about her delightfully campy romp THE BRASS MENAGERIE

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,

Amy Jo Jackson’s  BISTRO AWARD WINNING show The Brass Menagerie is a campy romp through the women of Tennessee Williams…in song! If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to hear Blanche DuBois or Maggie the Cat sing Broadway show tunes, wonder no longer – Amy Jo Jackson brings her rousing belt to these iconic women. Accompanied by Brian Nash on the keys, Amy Jo takes an audience through A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Suddenly Last Summer, The Rose Tattoo, and many more plays by Williams, mashed up with the classic songs of the musical theatre canon.

She talked with Queerguru on the eve of her performances at PTowns Tenessee Williams Theater Festival

 

 

 



ART GAYSEL; the Queerest Art Show: makes its P Town Debut

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , ,


 

Queer hotelier, art lover, and philanthropist Alex Guerra is always such a joy to be around as he is so passionate about all his projects which always end up making a significant contribution to the LGBTQ+  community.  A few years back he and partner Stephen Ginez decided to support queer artists and their work by mounting a satellite show in their Miami Hotel when the major (and very straight) ART BASEL arrived every December.

ART Gaysel didn’t just provide a space for these artists to promote and sell their art, but also a much-needed platform for queer artists to communicate, and even collaborate, with each other. 

Then when Guerra and GInez fell in love with Provincetown a couple of years ago they ended up buying a house here.  And it wasn’t too long after that Guerra wanted to start a Provincetown edition of Art Gaysel.  There has always been a wonderful art colony in PTown but there is still a significant shortage of edgy queer art ….. the genre that Guerra is such a passionate specialist in.

So this Pride Week in Ptown….. still a relatively new event, Guerra put his money where his mouth is and filled the Crews Quarters with 13  highly individual queer artists. from across the glove for the first Edition of ART GAYSEL Ptown

They are Gio Black Peter,  Daniel ​Ortizn, Tawnie Silva, Pietro Spirito, Manual Nanouris,  Patrick MIZUMOTO,  James Miille,  Dan Halm, Erick Medina,  Chris Molina,  Adam Chuck, Beniji, Alexander Guerra

Guerra also linked up with 5 existing studios that show complimentary art. These are Adam’s Nest,  Bowersock Gallery, E. Lesh Gallery, Greg Salvatori Gallery,  Gaston Lacombe

We caught  up with Guerra on the opening day and talked with him and a few of the artists,  We had to keep it brief as the crowds were already beginning to come in
