The Slamdance LGBT Slate
As Hollywood and the rest of the film world prepare to descend on Park City and the Queer Lounge, Sundance won't be the only game in town. Competing Slamdance also features a slate of films that are LGBT-inclusive or made by out filmmakers, such as Goodbye Baby (right).
LGBT people will be the subject of several Slamdance docs, including Pageant, which follows five men as they prepare to compete as female impersonators in the 34th Miss Gay America competition. The fest will also screen many LGBT-inclusive shorts, including the Hurricane Katrina-survivor profile Holdout, and the animated film Softly, which uses plastic dolls in place of actors.
We've put together a comprehensive list of LGBT Slamdance films here.
