UPDATE Dec 10, 2009: LA Weekly’s Lina Lecaro loved “Bad Questions!”:
There was plenty of the expected laughs and flash, sure, but the work was also compelling, complex and downright educational, notably Calpernia Addams’ “Bad Questions to Ask a Transsexual” (which has more than a million hits on You Tube), Beat’s video for “Don’t Tell Me You’re Gay” (an anthem for gaydar-less gals searching for Mr. Right, set to the beat ofThelma Houston’s “Don’t Leave Me This Way”), Chris “Leave Britney Alone!” Crocker’s discussion of his sexuality, and Zackary Drucker’s powerful piece, “You Will Never Be a Woman” (which we won’t even try to explain here).
Hey kids! Guess what? “Bad Questions” has been requested and will screen at the “transploitation” film event “Ultra Fabulous, Beyond Drag”!
