A roundup of LGBT-centric Valentine’s Day events for those who want to …
TIE THE KNOT (EVENTUALLY): Marriage recognition takes center stage in The Equality Forum’s V-Day spectacular, Equality Ball. The party raises awareness and funds for Palladino v. Corbett, a federal lawsuit initiated by the Equality Forum that asks the state of Pennsylvania to recognize same-sex marriages that were performed in marriage equality states. There will be an open bar and food from local restaurants and catering companies (Zahav, Amis, Fork) and a live band. D. Bruce Hanes and Rev. Frank Schaefer will be honored for their efforts to bring LGBT equality to the state of Pennsylvania.. 7 p.m.–10 p.m., $100, Liberty View Ballroom at the Independence Visitor Center, Sixth and Market streets.
If there’s one thing gay men love more than taking selfies in the snow, it’s getting out there and rolling around in it. I found these fun videos of a few locals frolicking in Janus’s leftovers — one guy even strips down to his boxers to make a snow angel for his giggling friends. Check them out below. Happy snow day, y’all!
The 2014 Sundance Film Festival kicks off today in — funny enough — Utah with a generous itinerary of LGBT flicks. And while most of us won’t have a chance to make it there, it’s worth keeping an eye on, because these films are the ones we’ll be talking about all year. We’ll probably even see a few of them at this year’s QFest. So to keep your on your gay movie game, I’ve rounded up some of the most-buzzed gay movies playing at the festival — from the documentary about trans musician Rae Spoon, My Prairie Home, to The Skeleton Twins, a comedy starring SNL alums Kristin Wiig (!) and Bill Hader. Check them out — with trailers (when available) and Sundance previews — below.
Out has some first-look photos of composer Charles Wuorinen and writer Annie Proulx’s Brokeback Mountain opera that’s opening in Madrid on Jan. 28 at the Teatro Real. The stills show Tom Randle (Jack), Daniel Okulitch (Ennis) and Heather Buck (Alma) in a rehearsal room and sans costumes or makeup. Though in some of the shots the threads aren’t that far off base.
