Is there anyone going to this show with Catie Curtis on Tuesday tonight at Club Passim in Harvard Square who can take some photos for QWIMB ( if you can take photos in there) and maybe do a write up about the show and your experience there? I’m not sure I’ll be able to make this and it’s important to document her performance.

Check out The Intervention! In theaters and on Amazon and itunes today!

Today is Clea Duvall Day!!!! Lets all celebrate her brilliance by seeing her new film The Intervention!! Clea's movie isn't just hilarious and touching, its also important. Behind the scenes we sometimes don't know things like...only 7 percent of films are directed by women, or that only 1-2 percent of film scores are done by women. How about that statistic that only 5 percent of cinematographers are women?! Clea wrote and directed this film but she also helped balance the scales by hiring so many other talented women to work both on and off camera. I was privileged to be one of those people. I had never done a film score before and I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to stare at these actors gorgeous faces for hundreds of hours. I laughed, I cried (mostly when I'd accidentally erase my work) and I was in attendance to see it makes its debut at the Sundance Film Festival! Its been a tremendous experience and I hope all of you will go out and see the film or watch it on demand or digital HD - http://Apple.co/2bc9tD1. So proud of you Clea! xoxoxoxox

Awww, I was so happy to have just stumbled onto this page but that happiness was short lived and now I am a bit crushed to see that it seems to be a dead page. Particularly because I am a transgender woman that has not been in a band since I was a kid and now I am in one again and this would have been such a good fit. Darn it!
We are so excited to announce that we are now on REVRY - the world’s first LGBTQ+ digital streaming service. Q***RATING the best Movies, TV, Digital Series, Music, Podcasts, and Originals, they are dedicated to showcasing artistry that truly represents the breadth of the q***r experience.

Watch. Enjoy. Engage. The REVolution is here. Are you ready? Check it out! Thanks for the support!
