It may have been snowing outside, but the temperature inside Queer Lounge was raised by its sixth and final panel, "Gay Filmmakers and Sexual Provocation," presented by The Advocate. Out directors Bruce LaBruce (Otto; or Up with Dead People), Isaac Julien (Derek) and Lesli Klainberg (Fabulous! The Story of Queer Cinema) joined moderator Kyle Buchanan (film critic for The Advocate) for a lively discussion of sexuality in lesbian and gay cinema.  Check out some highlights below!
