GayWeddings.com Announces Reel Affirmations Sponsorship

GayWeddings.com is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring one of the marquee films debuting in Washington, DC at the Reel Affirmations Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.
On Saturday, October 14, the award winning film, 20 Centimeters, which combines the flair of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert with the catchy music of Queen, Madonna and Dusty Springfield, to tell the three dimensional story of Marieta/Adolfo — “a narcoleptic, pre-op transsexual prostitute who longs to get rid of eight inches of equipment that separates her from being the glamorous person she longs to be.”
Of the film, the Philadelphia Gay & Lesbian Film Festival says:
“When she falls asleep – during the most inopportune moments- Marieta’s dreams become lavish and colorful musical numbers, where — as a “real woman” — she can sing in Spanish and English. Marieta finds support among her chaotic and often comical street life, which includes Ice Box (Rossy de Palma of Almodóvar fame) and Tomás, an aspiring cellist who happens to be a dwarf. But when she meets a man known only as “the fruit stocker,” (the hunky pop singer Pablo Puyol) whose buttocks are compared to a “ripe peach,” it’s love at first sight and spunky Marieta is caught between a rock and a hard place: true love or her true self. Shot in eye-popping Cinemascope and taking choreographic inspiration from Bob Fosse and Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers, director Ramón Salazar has crafted a film that will leave you humming!”
Winner: Best Music, Best Makeup, Critics Award: Spanish Malaga Film Festival
