Bmore QFest, an LGBT-themed film festival, starts Thursday with the Maryland premiere of “First Period” at MICA Brown Center (1300 Mount Royal Ave., Baltimore) and an opening gala, and continues through June 15 at various locations throughout Baltimore.
“First Period” tells the story of two high school girls (played by Brandon Alexander and Dudley Beene) who are determined to become popular by performing in their school talent show. After the screening, there will be a gala in the Brown Center Courtyard with cocktails and food. Other films screening that weekend include “Tennessee Queer,” a story about a New York City gay man who returns to his small Tennessee hometown, and “The Rugby Player,” a documentary about United Flight 93 passenger Mark Bingham, among many others.
Tickets for the opening night and gala are $35. Tickets for the other film screenings throughout the weekend are $10. For more information, visit bmorequeer.org.
