Things to Do In LA When You're Gay

In honor of my recent, full coverage of the White Party and Dinah Shore Weekend, I thought I'd devote a little space to things you can do if you're gay that don't involve liquor, drugs, six pack abs, disco balls, crawling back to your Palm Springs hotel room in the morning with the same clothes as last night, $12 beers and/or half naked men (not that there's anything wrong with that!).

First, there's the Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Business Mixer

WATER LILIES Wednesday, May 7, 7:30pm Rigler Theatre @ The Egyptian

Water Lilies

Special sneak preview!

Dir. CĂ©line Sciamma, France, 2007, 85 min.

Lesbian desire and teenage angst are working overtime among three 15-year-old girls in a Parisian suburb. Floriane is the blonde bombshell star of the synchronized swimming team and the object of affection to gawky Marie, who positions herself as Floriane’s confidante and covers for Floriane’s sexual escapades with her boyfriend. Meanwhile chubby Anne realizes her friendship with Marie is being threatened by Marie’s growing obsession with Floriane. Told with honesty and unflinching realism, director Sciamma’s first feature expertly taps into the psyche and social dynamics of teenage girls in this rich coming-of-age tale.
