Gay Pride Month is in full swing (or in our case, full swish).
And even though we’re proud to be gay 365 days a year (366 on the occurrence of a leap situation), it’s always fun to have an abundance of queer crammed into a shorter time frame.
This Thursday, celebrate Pride with a unique and rare opportunity to view a brand-new HBO special, THE OUT LIST, at the Dallas premiere. Not only is it two weeks before the rest of the world can view it, this is part of a private party hosted by Black Tie Dinner.
But don’t worry, we’ve got exclusive passes for a few of you to attend the reception, screening and post-film discussion.
What you’ll see on-screen is interviews with several prominent LGBT people, including actor Neil Patrick Harris, comedian Wanda Sykes (above), athlete Wade Davis, musician Jake Shears and local Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez, who will also be in attendance. (So be on your best behavior. She always travels with handcuffs, loaded gun and freeze ray. At least in our Super-Lupe comic book fantasy, she does.)
The director, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders will also be on hand to answer your questions, as well as two of the producers, Catherine Pino and Ingrid Duran.
Plus, attending this event with the Table Captains and sponsors of Black Tie Dinner is a fab way to learn more about the incredible work this organization does year after year to make sure we have even more reasons to be proud of our L, G, B or T status.
So come out, be out and celebrate.
