Thanks for your comment.
AIFF has a wide variety of films. And we have had a lot of GLBTQ films through the years.
Please check out our website
www.filmfestivalarizona.com for this year's schedule.
You can search for films many ways, including sexuality.
(Not many Film Festivals have that in their search engine.)
And you would find that
EN TIERRA DE VAQUEROS is playing 4/27 3pm Screening Room
If you look at our site, you will see that we don't shy away from controversy.
We love Out in the Desert Film Festival and hosted them at The Screening Room.
And if you have any leads on GLBTQ films, please let us know.
Also, let the filmmakers know so they will submit to our Festival.
We can't pick them, if they don't submit.
When are you folks at AZ Internat'l Film Fest going to get with the diversity and film festival connection by teaming with GLBTQ leaders in town and promoting (plastering in print and art everywhere you can) some GLBTQ themed films as one way to bring this backward small town into the light of day with current equality issues/events? Are you afraid of losing sponsors? Lead in/by/through Film Art.
why don't you just ride your bike down to Mi Nidito?
Remind me to cancel my plans to eat at Mi Nidito this Sunday.
Great article. I should say that Chax Press began as a publisher of handmade books of poetry, printing them on a letterpress Vandercook Press. And we still do that, in addition to publishing more commercially produced books. Never really a publisher of novels, though, except once or twice among our 150-plus books.
Thanks to Winnie and Chandler Warden.
You both misunderstand the basic concept of the freedom to access of information, which is a right that goes along with free speech. It's something that Brown v Board of Education covered a long time ago: there is no separate but equal. And when you teach something in a school, you give it added weight, added meaning, added significance, and when you outright deny the ability to teach these texts you tell people these texts are not as significant as others. It's not that the students don't have the right to read these texts elsewhere, which--true--is what they should be doing if they want access to more texts; rather, you limit teachers' abilities to address specific social and cultural concerns for students who might benefit most from them.
The irony here is that, when, you leave a lot of those ideas up to interpretation of, in many cases, readers are left able to interpret texts in whatever way they want. So it seems much more necessary to teach these texts inside the classroom, where they can be put in the right context, then leaving students to fend for themselves or simply accept the cultural, political, and social narrative that has been fed to them because of arbitrary borders we draw around what "is" and "isn't" good for students.
When are these people going to realize that distorting the facts (there was never any book ban!) only makes them appear foolish, untrustworthy and silly?
The students are not denied the opportunity to read this or any other book. It is just not part of the classroom curriculum. What is wrong with reading outside of school or the classroom? On her own time, my teenage daughter reads many books that are not part of her classroom curricula. These students are free to do the same any time and anywhere.
Great article on a great film fest. Can't wait to check it out.
And now for the rest of the story. Mr. and Mrs. Roach wore wedding bands to symbolize their wedding ceremony held in April 1998. They kept their government sanctioned marital contract secret for 14 years until it was exposed in a New York Times article -- a year and half after their December 2010 divorce -- following the tragic death of the ex-Mrs. Roach's lover ...
Mr. Roach was not a 'monk' because monks lose their ordination vow by engaging in sexual activities, which are required for valid marriage, whether or not they continue to 'wear robes' or spout slanderous lies against those who do keep their monastic vows purely.
Perhaps, in the wake of the 2012 Diamond Mountain tragedy, the Tucson Weekly will do some fact checking before publishing promotional pieces for oxymoronic liars ("a monk should have a relationship with a special lady").
Before you ignorantly trash this little circus, you should learn about it: they do not include wild animals in their act.
Please don't take your kids to this circus; animals are tortured into submission since birth so that we can see them sit on stools!
They live in cages during travels and in between shows and "training", and, while in training are repetitively beaten into submission...until one of them "looses it".
For that occasion, I have champagne in my fridge.
Teach your kids to do the right thing and ask for a ban on circus wild animals; you are watching "stars" treated like you would never treat your dog, or you would be sent to jail.
You can find flowers n lots of mex decor at a warehouse called Jungle Zoo at 2933 N Stone Avenue.. They also sell online at www.southwestandbeyond.com
who knows where I can buy Mexican paper flowers in Tucson?
I still want my daily gin collins.....to each his own.....
Thanks for the great article!
The event is at TIMPA (Tucson International Modelplex Association Complex), the address for your GPS is 3250 N. Reservation Road, Marana, AZ 85653
Nice job, Michelle!
Doug Stanhope is awesome if you can laugh at anything you dont want to miss his show. I own a few of his stand up dvd's and they get funnier everytime I watch them. He is not for the faint of heart, but if you are of the faint of heart you probably dont have a sense of humor anyway. DONT SHAKE THE BABY!!!!!
"MMMMM I'm Lovin' in!"
