Pride (In The Name Of Gay Love) Comments (0)

Pride

Check out a free screening of the gay movie Pride in NYC on September 4 here.

From a press release:

PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

Right On The Money Comments (0)

Ben-Rimalower

Ben Rimalower's Patti Issues was a delight, but his new one, Bad With Money (The Duplex, 61 Christopher St., NYC, September 4—November 6) sounds like it might hit too close to home for me!

From a press release:

Bad With Money delves into even deeper personal territory with the story of his struggle with debt—a journey that takes him through drug addiction, prostitution, fraud and multiple betrayals.

“In this gripping play-by-play of some of his biggest mistakes and their consequences, Rimalower offers a no-holds-barred self-portrait as an addict, and casts light on one of the last societal taboos.

Rimalower says:

“People tend to be familiar now with alcohol and drug addiction—and I've got those, too. But spending money I don't have is really my drug of choice. And considering how many people suffer from the same problem, it's staggering how seldom it's discussed.”

I'll have to see this, even if it makes me squirm. I am an inveterate spendthrift, the olden-days term for someone who is not only bad with money, they're the worst. I can list dozens of things I did to lose what was a substantial wad of cash I once had, and the timing couldn't be better—as we prepare to sell our place and part ways, I'm looking for a job and sifting through some pretty poor (and at least a few smart!) investments I made along the way.

I'll see you at the show. Drinks can be on you, dear readers.
