Frameline SF LGBT Film Festival Opening Night!

I'm so happy to be in California for a 10 week get away from the craziness and concrete jungle of New York City. First I am in San Fran for 3 weeks to go to Frameline Film Festival, and go to Pride. I'm making my first film! I have 3 LGBT characters in my screenplay, and wanted to be around other LGBT filmmakers. This is my 3rd time attending Frameline, and Opening Night is always so fun!
"> The Opening Night film was "The Secret Diary of Ann Lister", the true story of a lesbian woman in the early 1800's who defied society and did not conceal her sexuality at a time when most lesbian women married men as a means of surival. It was such a well done film, and I really felt the pain and challenges that the multiple women characters went through to be, or viel, who they were in a judgemental and superficial society.
With some friends I met a couple years ago when I was an organizer of the SF Trans March

The opening night gala was at the beautiful Botanical Gardens at Golden Gate Park. I ran into dozens of friends, some from SF, some from LA, and even a few from NY, and abroad. There was yummy food, fruity drinks and groovy music. It was like a family reunion, and was super fun.
