Shout, Birmingham’s second annual gay & lesbian film festival, kicks off tomorrow night (Friday, April 27) at WorkPlay. This year’s festival features a documentary film about our own Rep. Patricia Todd and her historic campaign. It also highlights actor Alan Cumming (X2:X-Men United) and Alabama’s own Jeff Key, whose one-man show, The Eyes of Babylon, is one of the most powerful and beautiful plays I have ever had the honor to experience.
Joe at Bessemer Opinions has a wonderful in-depth post on Jeff Key, his service in Iraq, and the Mehadi Foundation, which he established to help the children of Iraq.
Shout promises to be a great event. Don’t miss it!
