sundance and the threat of boycotts

sundancex3901

This weekend I put together a story about the Sundance Film Festival andf boycotts. Some gays are talking about a boycott of Utah and a boycott of Cinemark, whose CEO gave big to Yes on 8 and runs a four-plex that’s a major venue for Sundance. As the queer gods would have it, Sundance’s programming director is a gay guy who lives in California and got married on Nov. 1 . Talk about being in the eye of the storm! Read the article here. I also touched base with GLAAD, which sponsors the Queer Lounge at Sundance. As fate would have it, this year’s opening night film is from Adam Elliot, the Academy Award winner who made headlines in 2004 when he thanked his boyfriend in his acceptance speech.
