'Big Easy Queens' is a 'glam horror extravaganza' set in New Orleans.
Each year, The Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival “showcases a selection of compelling films and videos by, for, or about the LGBTQ+ community that entertains, enlightens and empowers.”
This year’s rendition features a range of queer-focused programming—from tender crowd pleasers like “The Mattachine Family” and drag-forward works like horror flick “Big Easy Queens” (pictured) to intersectional documentaries like “Black Barbie,” collections of short films and the music and romance-filled “Glitter and Doom.”
“Whether we want to admit it or not, our hard-earned equalities are under attack. During these times of fear mongering and hate, TIGLFF is more important than ever,” festival organizers write. “And we have some exciting things in store for you at TIGLFF Tampa—including guest appearances, exclusive screenings and special events.”
The Tampa Theatre hosts all opening day screenings; all other screenings will take place at AMC Westshore. The St. Pete edition of TIGLFF happens early next year, from Jan. 24-28.
Tickets to 2023's Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival happening from Oct. 5-8 are still available and start at $15. Subscribe to Creative Loafing newsletters.
