The TIFF Bell Lightbox honours Pride with Bent Lens, a program of queer cinema through August 17, including Skin Flicks: The Film Of Bruce LaBruce (July 19 to July 3) and Queer Pagan Punk: The Films Of Derek Jarman (June 12 to July 5). But we can't wait for the onstage interview with director Lee Daniels (The Woodsman, Precious), one of the few out gay black directors working today.
The guy is bold, beautifully open about his queerness and positively silver-tongued. In an interview with NOW about The Paperboy - that slice of sleazy southern Gothic - he giggled about the fact that he'd never made a movie that was safe enough to recommend to his mother. But then he made The Butler, so theoretically it's all good with mom.
Find out Sunday (June 22), when Daniels is interviewed by host Wilson Cruz (out star of the groundbreaking My So-Called Life). tiff.net.
