LGBT Filmmakers Get The Spotlight At Fears For Queers 2

For some people, the sight of seeing a same sex couple holding hands is pretty frightening. Most of the rest of us prefer to find our frights in the confines of a movie theater. However, this weekend, Bloodbath Entertainment puts the two together in practical fashion when they present the Fears for Queers 2 Film Festival this Saturday, June 25th.

The festival runs from 2PM – 7PM at the historic Texas Theater and features films either created by LBGT filmmakers or of gay interest. On this year’s slate of films is “George’s Intervention” by director J.T. Seaton (featuring genre veteran, Lynn Lowry) and the vampire comedy, “Bite Marks” by writer/director Mark Besssenger.

Additionally, three shorts will also be presented “Cupcake” by Rebecca Thompson, “metsastymmaa” by Nalle Mielonen and “I Was a Tranny Werewolf” by Lola Rocknrolla.

Half of all ticket sales will be donated to Youth First Texas, a non-profit Dallas organization which helps provide youth in the LGBTQ community counseling and support, activities, leadership opportunities and educational support. For more information, visit them online here.

Dubbed, "TerrorScribe" by a former editor, Joe made the conversion to horror sometime in the mid-2000s. Little did he know he'd favored the genre all of his life. When not struggling with short stories, he provided genre film reviews for local entertainment sites and later genre sites who could suffer his cynical views.

It was that same cynicism - and some might say hubris - that lead him to have a brief flirtation with filmmaking. His first two efforts, "Annotated" and "Antes Que Seja Tarde (Before It's Too Late)" both premiered at a local H.P. Lovecraft film festival. A third short, "Survivor Girl" proved to be his undoing though plans are in the works to revived the cursed project.

Born and raised in Dallas, TX., Joe now resides in a small Texas town. Statistics say more dead bodies turn up in small towns that big cities... though he claims to have NOTHING to do with that.
