I'm thinking several different relevant topics and a few films that illustrate the special theme.
"DIRE CONSEQUENCES!!!"----the ugly fate of the early queers!
Homos must DIE (or at least suffer)
"THE OBSESSIONS"-----loving the boys too much.
"PLAYING FOR LAUGHS"
Okay. There's a bunch of others that I'm not sure of. I vaguely remember a lousy "comedy" called (I think) "Is That You, Bruce?" Not sure again, but I think there was a French film called "Two Thieves" where one guy fucked the other (although they were both str8) in a public restroom. Very hot actors, both pretty famous at the time....
I know there was an English movie about teens in a detention center/prison setting that I got a boner for. Anyone know what I'm talking about here?
Gay scenes in any of Pasolini's work? Other Fassbinder titles worth considering? Anyone know any early Canadian stuff? Their independent films were cropping up in the 70's. If anyone has copies of any of the aforementioned movies can we bring them to the house and begin sampling them? Do you know anyone with an extensive archive of faggoty films that we can use for the project? I'd like to hear (at least an acknowledgment) from each of you to let me know the level of interest in seeing this through.
I am NOT doing this thing solo. I don't have the resources or the ability to pull this off by myself. Durk tells me that Glen Hanson is interested in participating on some level. I don't know him so someone else should make contact. Anyone who knows ANYONE who would be an ideal "ringleader" for this thing should proffer a name. Let's try not to let this get to the last possible moment (as we seem to have done with the last few events) to throw this thing together. We have time enough but I'm not seeing the enthusiasm or effort. Like I said, I don't have a phone, a car, or enough contacts here to be the head chef on this one. Step forward, my friends. And are there any other Board Members who'd like to do something useful in connection to this idea? I mean, really...

Kirwan to look at Calendar and reschedule evening
Board discusses project. Scott informed that Kirwan may need volunteers. Will review project and review its proposal after 3 evenings. Sharp will discuss with Kirwan. Schedule next event on Calendars and Events Page. Will it "make" an e-news?
Mikael Kirwan did everything. Paid for it all as well. Looks like it's just too hot for anyone to show so he'll do the same class next weekend. It'll give him time to make flyers and drum up interest. Technical difficulties burning CD.
