The Future Is Queer: Outfest Fusion is Here!

We know what you’re doing Saturday–most likely getting wasted at Hamburger Mary’s and then shuffling off to join the absurd line outside of Med Men. But what are you doing this Sunday? Nothing? I thought so. Well listen up dearies, now you’re doing this! Outfest Fusion is in town with a collection of queer-as-hell short films that are going to blow your mind. See below for the full lineup– be there or be hungover! Or maybe both.
