9. FILM: Southern Baptist Sissies
Southern Baptist Sissies is based on the play of the same name by Del Shores, who won a GLAAD Award for his portrait of four boys wrestling with their gayness in the conservative South. Boasting stellar performances from familiar names like Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace), Dale Dickey (Winter’s Bone), and Willam Belli (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Sissies is a sobering look at the hypocrisy within the Southern Baptist faith and the harm ensues when religion is used as a weapon against love. The film had its world premiere in Palm Springs, Calif., at the Camelot Theatres, where it will continue to play until Thursday, and it will open the next day in Los Angeles.
