This Sunday night, the Baltimore Queer Film and Media Festival gets audiences warmed up with a screening of Chad Darnell’s mockumentaryBirthday Cake. The B’More QFest, which takes place June 12-15, 2014, will feature LGBT films from around the world — with a hat tip to Maryland, of course — special performances by the loveable Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) of his one-man show Fruit Fly: Do Gay Men Become Their Mothers?, and queer-themed art exhibits.
Birthday Cake’s Darnell recently made the rounds on the gay film circuit with his prequel short, Groom’s Cake, which swept up many festival awards. The next preview event for this year’s B’More QFest will be the Del Shore Southern Tragic Humor Double Bill on April 6, featuring the gay cult classic Sordid Liveswith Leslie Jordan and Olivia Newton John.
