Dustin Lance Black, left, took the Oscar for best original screenplay for “Milk.” Now he drops into paradise for the 20th Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival at Doris Duke Theatre. Talk about star power. The great lineup of films takes you from a Honolulu beauty salon (Kevyn Fong’s “Beauty Brawl“—”oh shit, oh shit…BEAUTY BRAWL!”) to a day in the lives of South London hunks (Adrian Shergold’s “Clapham Junction“). No matter what gender you like in your bed, these are films you want to see.
Are you a filmmaker? The fest is sponsoring a “Show Us Your Rainbow” contest—upload your video on YouTube by May 20.
Festival organizers Jeff Davis, Connie Florez, Jack Law and Richard Reese are on the cover of this month’s Expression! magazine.
