This film takes place at Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center. Launched in 2013, REEL Queer is more than just film showings–it’s a community! Now in its second season, REEL Queer has broadened its community partnerships to include Squeaky Wheel and the Pride Center of WNY, in addition to maintaining its preexisting relationship with founding partner Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center.
For the past 20 years, Mario Diaz has crafted his own iconic image as the premier LGBT nightlife king, throwing some of the sexiest and wildest parties from New York to LA, including the insanely appealing Hot Dog, BFD and Full Frontal Disco. Filmmaker Jon Bush combines Diaz’s personal reflections with candid interviews and archival footage from the East and West Coast’s hottest queens (including Jackie Beat), go-go boys, and singers like Justin Vivian Bond, resulting in a dizzyingly wild ride. Directed by Jon Bush. (2014, Runtime 70 minutes)
