Revry celebrates Easter and Oscar season with an entire April calendar highlighting queer content.
Revry kicks off April Fools with it’s hysterically charming, absurdist, original game show, Versus, hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race icon, Deven Green, where instincts and fun override smarts and knowledge. As Jesus rises on Easter, step into conversations about religion and sexuality with films like Mercy’s Girl, Hell or High Water, Deviant…or the powerful documentary Call Me Troy, about the first gay Reverand who started the queer friendly Metropolitian Community Church, now, with over 200 congregations.
Throughout the month, Revry will continue to celebrate special holidays including the World Premiere of the dark comedy series Pet Peeves on National Pet Day (4/11) about pet psychic and ex-con Milton Michaels; the mockumentary comedy series Dope State on 4/20; Denial, a documentary about electricity, identity, family on Earth Day (4/22); for Perfect Date Day the comedy Sweater on 4/25; and on Lesbian Visibility Day 4/26, the appropriate I Lesb You.
Also this month, a week before the Oscars is the annual star-studded Dorians Film Toast, the official GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics) awards show highlights the best films and performances of the year. And starting on April 20th, Revry will launch its first weekly news show, Culture Q starting every Thursday.
