Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

The Power Of Pink

Marilyn Manson. A gender-fluid child. And a Dallas gayborhood hotel.

These three seemingly disparate things came together in one of our favorite stories. Someone we know (we’ll call him Schmorlando to protect his identity) was working at a Dallas hotel when Marilyn Manson checked in one night with his entourage. While walking him to his room with all his baggage, a VHS tape fell out of his belongings. It was Ma Vie En Rose.

Schmorlando kept the tape as a souvenir, so we got to watch Ma Vie En Rose whenever we wanted—a real perk because we love the 1997 movie.

Tonight at 8:00 p.m., CinéWilde presents Ma Vie En Rose (My Life In Pink) at the Texas Theatre. Arrive early to get your cocktails and/or popcorn, plus a pre-show conversation about the movie, which turns 25 this year.

After the screening’s over, local queer dance company Very Good Dance Theatre will present a dance piece about genderizing inanimate objects.

And if that makes no sense to you, all the more reason to check out the performance.

One thing we know for sure, however: You’re going to love Ma Vie En Rose whether it’s your first time or you 21st. It’s so life-affirming and quirky that it will forever be a queer cinema classic.
