April 16, 2011

The Salt Lake Film Society has lined up a HOT summer of LGBT films and festival for 2011.  Starting in May with Fruit Fly, and ending in August with TAQWACORES with a ‘DAMN! THESE HEELS LGBT FILM FESTIVAL‘ sandwiched in the middle.  Get your your smartphone, iPad or favorite paper calendar and mark these down.  While you’re at it, don’t forget to visit the Salt Lake Film Societies website and donate.  It ain’t cheap to keep culture coming INTO Salt Lake… so support a group that helps bring the outside into Utah!
