Kickstart This: A Gays In Russia Movie Project


MOSCOW, Russian Federation: Warmest wishes to your from Russia. Even though it can be very cold over here, we have very warm hearts! 

It’s widely known that LGBT community and human rights always were infringed in Russia but after latest laws that our government has supported last year, gay-community is in real danger. Day by day people who serve this country as solders, teachers, doctors, lawyers etc. are rejected and now even face homophobic attacks and death threats. 

WE a group of filmmakers, who support LGBT community, freedom of a person and tolerance in the world are preparing for next short film production. Our story is about an ordinary day of a lesbian couple that turned out to change their life forever. A school teacher became a suspect in trumped-up case against her and her child meanwhile her successful girlfriend came too close to an unpleasant truth about the way child adoptive system works. 

Unfortunately we a doing a very dangerous job here, so we can’t ask for support in Russia, it can lead us to jail. But we are devoted to our goal to make this movie, to tell this important story to all over the world! So we decided to ask help from all people who care!

The Dinah Shore Weekend VIDEO PROMO

CLUB SKIRTS DINAH SHORE WEEKEND 
RELEASES NEW PROMO VIDEO 

FOR THE DINAH 2014 


As the original Dinah Shore Weekend (April 2- April 6, 2014) is, for the 24th year in a row, about to bring all-time high temperature records , Club Skirts has just released a brand new promo video, "The Lesbian Book Club", giving a hot glimpse into what the biggest lesbian event in the world is all about. 

Starring an outstanding ensemble cast of fine actors and comedians including Guinevere Turner ("American Psycho", "The L Word"), Doria Biddle (radio personality, host of Out Q on Sirius XM radio), Gloria Bigelow ("Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious"), Erin Foley (who was just on "The Arsenio Hall Show"), as well as a cameo appearance by Mariah Hanson (founder & producer of The Dinah), the video takes us from the cozy, intimate walls of a lesbian book club in the freezing East Coast weather to the scorching heat, blue sky, and celebratory settings of the epic Dinah Shore Weekend in the sunny oasis.

Produced, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker JD DiSalvatore, the promo video is a hilarious comedy humorously hinting at a hosts of reasons why The Dinah offers the perfect escape from "Snowmaggedon" currently slamming the East Coast and bringing chaos to the mid-Atlantic.

With some 15,000 plus women from all over the world making the pilgrimage each year for a life-changing experience, The Dinah Shore Weekend is 
a one-of-a-kind destination where women of all ages, interests, ability, relationship status, cultural background and profession come together for one big giant celebration of the community.  What The Dinah offers is the opportunity for lesbians to express themselves, to be who they truly and gain a tremendous amount of self worth. 

This is no fiction … it's The Dinah!

Up & Coming LGBT Music: Samwitch

Quirky name, right?

Well actually, this lesbian pop duo is made up of Sam Tolson and her Australian rap artist partner, Switch. SamSwitch. Damn, took the quirkiness right out of that one...

But never mind, because this pair will make your ears happy.


We know Justin Bieber has been in the news for all of the wrong reasons lately, but Samwitch have an awesome cover of one of his songs that will (probably) be far more interesting to you gay ladies out there than any of his immature teenage pop.

Wanna hear? Of course you do.




To hear more from Samwitch (with a bonus: some tracks of Sam singing alone), go to the band's YouTube page and subscribe!
