Desperado LGBT Film Festival Closes This Weekend

For some, the first things that come to mind when thinking of gay cinema are films like Brokeback Mountain and Blue Is the Warmest Color. While these flicks have their merits, they barely scratch the surface of LGBT film. The fifth annual Desperado Film Festival is here to broaden viewers' outlooks with a weekend of shorts and feature films that will make the audience laugh, cry, and ultimately a look at the diversity of the LGBT community.

We recently talked with festival co-chair Dale Heuser about what this year's Desperado has in store.
