SF Play by Play via B.A.R.

by Accidental Bear

I have to say that I have had a break through, change of heart if you will after viewing the film We Were Here. I feel as if a majority of the gay men in the “scene” or part of our gay community in San Francisco act in ways or have attitudes ( bad attitude) that divides each other with an overall high school popularity / mean girls competition. The film showed multiple ways that our community works much better together ( gays AND lesbians) than divided. I may put aside my superiority complex and live life from here on out as a compassionate gay adult living in the best community in the world. I love the fact that this film has restarted a conversation of togetherness, one fight. One last note, I LOVE  LESBIANS

Since pop star Britney Spears feels quite at home enough in the Castro District to do her Good Morning America shoot from there, and actress Faye Dunaway feels she belongs back in the spotlight on Dancing with the Stars, we feel we can bring you along to a deep, dark, exotic place where many fear to tread: Out There’s weekend datebook. Last Friday night at the Castro Theatre, OT was among the VIP crowd at the opening-night premiere for We Were Here – The AIDS Years in San Francisco from co-directors David Weissman and Bill Weber, a benefit for Project Inform and Shanti . At the reception in the mezzanine, the filmmakers made remarks to a see-and-be-seen crowd that included political luminaries Carole Migden, Scott Wiener , Harry Britt, and special guest singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright .From the stage of the Castro, Wainwright conjured up the spirit of Judy Garland as he sang “Over the Rainbow” with heart and soul, accompanied by Matthew Simmons (Peggy L’Eggs ) on keyboards. Shanti e.d. Kaushik Roy , PI e.d. Dana Van Gorder , Weissman and Weber made touching remarks. Then they rolled the film.
