    Making The Boys, a Pride movie event with Stonewall
    Thursday, June 2 at 7:00pm
    Location: Gateway Film Center

    More Info
    Reception at 7 pm, film at 8pm
    Light Appetizers and Cash Bar with Drink Specials – Tickets $6
    Benefiting Stonewall Columbus and the Columbus International Film+Video Festival

    MAKING THE BOYS tells the story of Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking play “The Boys in the Band” – from overnight sensation on Broadway, to Hollywood’s first gay movie, to cultural landmark and worldwide phenomenon – all the while having a complicated and sometime…s controversial relationship with the gay community. No one could have guessed the impact that a small Off-Broadway production would have on the social climate of the 1960s… not to mention how important and monumental it was to gay people at the time, many of whom were still in the closet. MAKING THE BOYS features illuminating and entertaining footage from the period, interwoven with extensive interviews with Crowley, William Friedkin, the Oscar-winning director of the BOYS movie, and a host of luminaries inluding Dominick Dunne, Tony Kushner, Terrence McNally, Edward Albee, Dan Savage, Robert Wagner and many others.

    CRITIC’S PICK! “Captivating and entertaining…sometimes you don’t have to go very far into the past to be amazed at how drastically things have changed. ‘Making the Boys’ is fascinating recent history and a fascinating personal story as well.”
    – Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

    No Matter which way you swing, the Pride Parade is one of the most entertaining events (not exactly kid-friendly, though) to see all summer long!

    And the drag softball thing Bat N’ Rouge on Sunday. The wickedly funny mc’s acerbically commenting on the players and each other makes for a fun afternoon. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder than at one of these games.

    From JoeMyGod:
    “Saying “Happy Pride!” is really just a shorter, easier way of saying “Congratulations on not being driven completely batshit insane! Way to go for not taking a rifle into a tower and taking out half the town! Well done, being YOURSELF!”
