I’ve blabbed quite a bit about “R/Evolve” the big queer locally made film from writer/producer Basil Shadid and director Billie Rain. Mr. Strangeways had a tiny hand in the creation of the film, (which basically consisted of yelling at Basil during the scripting process), so now I’m morally obligated to plug the film as payment for my first IMDb credit.

Though, I would anyway because it’s a great movie.

R/EVOLVE had its world premiere at the BFI London Lesbian Gay Film Festival earlier this year, but y’all have a chance to check out the film this coming Thursday, June 6 with a very special advance screening at the Northwest Film Forum, at 7pm. The advance tickets are GONE, but there will be 30 tickets for sale at the door, so get there EARLY if you wanna check it out…the box office will release the tickets at 6:30pm that evening. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until fall to see it in again at the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.

Here’s the skinny about the film:

R/EVOLVE SYNOPSIS:
Lucas and Lincoln just got engaged. Marriage equality may soon be legal, and Lucas will have everything he wants—a career and a stable home with Lincoln.

Meanwhile, Lincoln is leading a major account at his advertising firm—one that will rehabilitate the image of conservative company Big Corp by having its CEO grandstand for the marriage equality campaign. The approach could secure loyal “pink money” for Big Corp and launch Lincoln’s career. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime, but Lincoln senses something isn’t right.

When he picks up a free-spirited hitchhiker named Raccoon, Lincoln inadvertently enters a world of art and activism. New concepts of freedom and stability are revealed to him, awakening the artist inside him. However, his newfound radical politics quickly jeopardize his work, his relationship and the struggle for marriage equality, leaving everyone asking, “What is the face of equality and what is the price?”
