In the locally made film Tennessee Queer, a gay Tennessee native returns to his rural hometown after spending a few years up north in New York, only to find that nothing has changed there with the treatment of LGBT teens.
Eager to help the teens boost their self-esteem, Potts helps them put on the town's first gay pride parade. But a conservative city councilman and a closed-minded minister plot to round the teens up and send them to a straight camp.
Mark Jones' comedy will screen on Thursday, January 24th at Studio on the Square as a fund-raisier for the annual Outflix Film Festival. Tickets are $10, and all sales go toward the film fest. Tickets can be bought in advance at the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center (892 South Cooper). Remaining tickets will be sold at the movie theater on the 24th starting at 6PM.
