Lithuanian queer filmmaker Romas Zabarauskas on his new movie The Lawyer

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLeave a comment on Lithuanian queer filmmaker Romas Zabarauskas on his new movie The Lawyer


 

Romas Zabarauskas is one of a very rare breed.  He is a queer filmmaker in Lithuania, a country not exactly well- known for its LGBTQ cinema.   

Queerguru got to talk with him on the eve on the World Premiere of his latest movie THE LAWYER at London’s BFI Flare LGBTQ Film Festival. 

Zabarauskas has skillfully woven together an unusual queer romance that also packs a powerful message about the plight of LGBTQ Syrian refugees stranded in Europe, and at the same gives such a positivity to the film’s queerness.  It’s not only all very impressive,  but throughly entertaining too.

Andre Jordan makes it to Broadway

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , Leave a comment on Andre Jordan makes it to Broadway

We first came across queer actor/performer Andre Jordan in 2017 when he wrote to Queerguru saying he thought we would like his new web series The Queens Project. He was so wrong.  We didn’t like it.  We loved it. 

Our paths have crossed a few times since then as he insists on coming to Provincetown most summers, and even in those packed crowds, Andre is very difficult to miss.   He is always busy working and has performed in National Tours of musicals like ‘Shrek’ and ‘Legally Blonde‘.   It has all finally paid off as he has now landed his first part on Broadway.

Andre is appearing Diana: A True Musical Story the story of The Princess of Wales which is currently in previews.  We knew how excited he would be so we couldn’t wait to track him down in NY to talk to him.  

Check out our interview and you will discover that like us you’ll be swept away with his infectious humor and genuine zest for life.  He got the part because of his sheer talent,  but we think that  this success couldn’t have happened to a nicer person

How Gay Can Man[ny] Get?

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , Leave a comment on How Gay Can Man[ny] Get?

Is a Britney Spears Themed 40th Birthday Bash just toooooo gay?  No need to answer it is a rhetorical question.  This is however Miami where nothing is ever too much and Manny the host has a Peter Pan complex anyway.

Saying that it was all done in the best possible taste.  DJ HottPants was there at the turntable complete with his short shorts, headband and legwarmers.  He specializes in  music both terribly wonderful and wonderfully terrible, and never ever stops dancing..  Take a look……

Sadly Ms Spears herself surprisingly turned down an invitation to attend, but that didn’t matter  as Miami’s very  own YouTube Star and Influencer Morphine Love came and out-Britannyed Brittany.

 

The only real worrying thing (?) is that  QUEERGURU’s newest Correspondents flew in from L.A. dressed like this.  Should we be really concerned ?
