Dear Shaded Viewers,
After Louie was the closing night at Frameline in San Francisco. The film stars Alan Cumming and the screening was held at the historic Castro Theater.
A few words from the director:
Such an honor to show after louie as the closing night feature at frameline in the historic castro theater. It is a church and you can smell and feel the history.
Vincent Gagliostro’s opening remarks.
These are dangerous times my beautiful friends.
Everyday we wake up alive, relatively happy, and functioning human beings, we are committing a rebellious act.
Queer power is the power to change the world.
We must turn our anger, our fear and our grief into action.
We must be vigilant. We must refuse. We must resist.
We must fight oppression; homophobia, racism, misogyny and the bigotry of religious hypocrites –
We are an army because we have to be.
And, an army of lovers cannot lose
I love you and thank you for coming out to see our film.
