"It's entirely fat-free! She tosses out a night of storytelling, ribald stand-up comedy, and live (not lip-synched) singing. Her show includes her nationally-acclaimed original comedic music that is peppered with parodies of old time favorites and startling satire. Expect a night of side-splitting laughter from Hedda Lettuce, one of New York City's premiere drag queens." -Act II Stages

Special Event
Film Screening and Q&A

more info

Film Screening followed by Q&A with Teresa Delfín & Dafne Estrada. “I became her sister”. The story of a mexican girl in a journey to turn into the woman she always dreamed of.

7:00 pm   27 May   @ Act II Stages

Dafne’s story is personal and very porwerful. Her experience is an illustration of the life of many LGBT people in Bahía de Banderas, a region in Mexico where natives insist that discrimination based on gender identity or sexuality has never been a cultural value. This is a story of love, acceptance, self-realization and transition made in a way that is true to the regional culture and family ties. “I Became Her Sister” is located within the broader LGBT culture, bringing to light the regional diversity of Mexico in the approaches of gender and sexuality. (In Spanish with English subtitles.)

Photographic exhibition “Gay Vallarta” and movie.
