Susan Seidelman In Conversation With Bette Gordon On DESPERATELY SEEKING SOMETHING Comments (0)

If you've got an hour (!) to kill, please check out this interesting chat with Susan Seidelman moderated by fellow director Bette Gordon (Variety). Seidelman's book Desperately Seeking Something: A Memoir About Movies, Mothers, and Material Girls is out now, and this event at Powerhouse in Brooklyn (June 19) was like a live version of it.

She touches on Smithereens, Desperately Seeking Susan, She-Devil and her other films, her first efforts at filmmaking, her ups and downs and much more. Some juicy stuff.

It was hell filming more than an hour with no tripod in a bookstore with a rumbling train outside, but ... I tried!

On Monday evening, I was happy to attend the Queerty Pride50 cocktail party at the Edison Ballroom on Broadway, where Queerty toasted some of the LGBTQ+ people to have made this year's coveted list.

IMG_3061*Twink-fluencers Art Bezrukavenko & Chris Stanley might have been the room's most famous faces to fly under the radar.

While mostly a fun party, it also featured performances by emcee Peppermint and Morgxn and offered the site a chance to bestow its Catalyst Award upon Charles Busch and its Impact Award on Paula Pell.

IMG_3038*Pell, yeah!

Busch was bowled over by the honor, giving a charming speech about why he embarked upon his 50-year career, and how he feels getting a little love on the eve of his 70th birthday:

Pell — didja know she is not only the star of Girls5eva but helped created such SNL characters Debbie Downer and Gilly?! — gave a suitably hysterical acceptance speech, one that defiantly urged us to ask What Would a 61-Year-Old Do?, the answer being: Not Give AF:
