Gay Travel: Mami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival Begins April 27th
This month marks the highly anticipated return of the annual Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, which turns 14 this year. From April 27 through May 6, MGLFF will be screening more than 60 queer movies from around the world and honoring out country singer and gay rights activist Chely Wright with the Lavender Heart Award on opening night. (Her documentary, Wish Me Away, will be screening on April 28.)

The New Zealand drama Kawa (right) by filmmaker Katie Wolfe is one of many spotlighted international films at the festival. It tells the tale of a seemingly happily married man whose secret gay life shatters his domestic bliss. Based on a book by Whale Rider novelist Witi Ihimaera, Kawa has the honor of opening the festival on April 27.

The critically acclaimed documentary Vito, screening on April 28, is an account of gay activist Vito Russo, who not only became a pioneer of gay civil rights after the Stonewall riots but chronicled how the LGBT community was represented in film, in his groundbreaking book, The Celluloid Closet.
