Pride in the Arts International GLBT Film Festival kicks off tonight at the Shadowbox Cinema, 22 Kirk Ave., in downtown Roanoke. First up in this three day event is the documentary, "Woman in a Man's Suit", about the life and music of critically acclaimed transgender singer/songwriter Georgie Jessup, "what would you risk to be yourself?"
Georgie will be on hand performing her music after the film. There will be an opening night party with a cash bar until 12 midnight.
Roanoke's first ever GLBT film festival continues through the weekend with matinee and evening shows featuring other independent GBLT films. See the Pride in the Arts website for more details. Tickets are just $7.
Georgie Jessup will also be performing at Saturday's 2nd Annual Rally for GLBT Equality as our opening and closing act. The rallt takes place at Elmwood Park in downtown Roanoke from 10:45 am to 12:15 pm. I'll be taking on the hosting duties. Can't wait to see you all there
