Three performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. April 28, 29, and 30. The Laramie Project tells the story of Matthew Shepard, a young man living in Laramie, Wyoming, in 1998. He was 21 years old the night he died at the hands of a bigoted group of teenagers who beat him and tied him to a fence where he was found the next morning. Writer/director Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project produced this work of “theatrical journalism” about the heinous act of cruelty and homophobia, and its effect on the town of Laramie.

The hype-machine is up and running and it’s time for more QFest reviews! We also want to give you another reason why YOU should attend this year’s festival.

Reason Two: QFest is “keke” approved! For those who are unfamiliar with the term, keke is the act of joking, laughing and basically enjoying one’s life among queers. The following three films each bring something unique to QFest and they’re the kind of movies you won’t see at your local megaplex: two raunchy gay-sex comedies and an indie-lesbian romantic comedy. There’s a lot in here that the straight viewer may not get but that’s not your concern. Just sit back and enjoy because these movies are proof that queers have more fun.
