I'll write more about Red Without Blue when it airs on the Sundance Channel on Monday, June 25th, but there is a screening on Wednesday at 2:15 pm at the Castro with the directors and the twins the film is about doing a Q&A.
On Thursday at 7 pm at the Victoria, Black White + Gray: A Portrait of Sam Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe is screening (it is sold out, but there are rush tickets if you get there early enough). I followed the NEA battle over Mapplethorpe's work closely (and was able to see the show that sparked the controversy at the Whitney), but I still learned a lot about his work and the influence of Sam Wagstaff.
Lynn Breedlove's Godspeed (based on her novel) will also show on Saturday as part of the same shorts program. Breedlove will also be reading on Wednesday at 6 pm at the main library as part of the Mad to Live: Queers Under the Influence of the Beats series Tea organized (it concludes on June 27th at the same time). Two films by experimental filmmaker Abigail Child will also be shown on Saturday at the Victoria at 6 pm.
