Desperado LGBT Film Festival 2015 Brings Award-Winning Movies to Paradise Valley

Not to sound like Stefon from Saturday Night Live, but Desperado LGBT Film Festival 2015 has everything: comedies, dramas, documentaries, a horror film, cartoons, romance, short films, and a pink, fuzzy monster with dreams of becoming a cabaret singer.

Seriously, the sixth edition of the Valley's LGBT-themed film festival, which runs Friday through Sunday, January 23 through 25, at Paradise Valley Community College Center for the Performing Arts, has a little something for everyone, including Q&A sessions with directors and actors, live music, and an art gallery.
