7. FILM: Motherland
Inspired by her mother’s murder, filmmaker Doris Yeung’s hauntingly somber feature debut — a 2009 Outfest selection opening March 18 in New York — stars Françoise Yip as Raffi, a young Asian-American lesbian who returns home when her estranged mother is murdered. Raffi’s mother couldn’t accept her relationship with a woman, but Yeung makes Raffi’s sexuality mostly a side dish, focusing instead on disturbing family drama.
6. DVD: The People I’ve Slept With
Available March 22, Quentin Lee’s quirky sex comedy stars Karin Anna Cheung as Angela, a promiscuous young bisexual in search of the man responsible for her surprise pregnancy — a feat made more fun by her habit of taking photos of each conquest. My So-called Life’s Wilson Cruz is a hoot as Gabriel, Angela’s gay bestie and, thanks to one boozy night, possible baby-daddy. Rane Jameson is crush-worthy as Gabriel’s boyfriend.
5. MUSIC: Glam Nation Live, Adam Lambert; American Idol 10th Anniversary The Hits: Volume 1
Recorded at Clowes Hall in Indianapolis last August 31, Lambert’s concert CD/DVD, out March 22, features live performances of all your favorites from Lambert’s For Your Entertainment plus Idol highlight “Ring of Fire” and a cocky cover of T. Rex’s “20th Century Boy.” Along with Clay Aiken’s “Invisible,” Lambert’s “Whataya Want From Me” adds gay glam to the 12 singles on Idol’s new commemorative compilation.
