    Anyone coming to San Francisco should check this out - a multitude of films with gay or lesbian content. Ends with the final feature-length episode of Looking.
    Shown in the art deco Castro theater, with organ music every night

    I see there will be a showing of the film "Akron", a love story about two college guys which has been making the rounds of various LGBT festivals and getting great reviews. I'm jealous - they just announced the lineup for LA's Outfest and it won't be shown there.

    Being a native of Akron I was looking forward to seeing an LGBT film made in my hometown by people who live there. Guess I'll have to wait and see it on Amazon Prime.

    Akron is reported to be a very good film.

    What is more enticing, however, is Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo. Programmers have advised that this will be the hot ticket at the festival. Begins with 18 minutes of steamy sex at a sauna or sex club, and then carries on for the rest of their day, as they start to get acquainted, a la Weekend (British film of 2011). May be difficult to see other than at a festival, since it probably won't be released in the US, as it would be x-rated (or have to be cut).

    Yep Theo & Hugo will be playing here at Outfest, albeit at an inconvenient time - 9:15 pm on a Sunday, which means I wouldn't get home until after midnight, and I'm up at 5:30 am for work - not the way to start the week!
