Meet Writer/Director Del Shores and Producer/Star Emerson Collins at a pre-screening 'Church Potluck' Themed Meet & Greet and silent auction starting at 2 p.m. Then stay for two films: Sordid Lives & Southern Baptist Sissies. In Addition to Sordid Lives and Southern Baptist Sissies, Shores was a Writer/Producer on Queer As Folk. Collins also well known for the Bravo series. The People's Couch. Sordid Lives As three generations of a family in a small Texas town gather for a funeral, we learn the hilarious, sad, trashy truth of the "Sordid Lives." A colorful family from a small Texas town must come to grips with the accidental death of the elderly family matriarch during a clandestine meeting in a seedy motel room with her much younger, married neighbor. The woman's family must deal with their own demons while preparing for what could be an embarrassing funeral. Starring Leslie Jordan Delta Burke and Bonnie Bedilia. Southern Baptist Sissies follows the journey of four gay boys growing up in the Southern Baptist Church. Storyteller and narrator Mark Lee Fuller (Emerson Collins) guides the story through the formative experiences and moments that heightened the conflict between the rigid teachings of the church and their developing sexuality for each of the boys. Mark, the thinker, questions the teachings of the church from an early age, unable to understand a God of love who would send people to hell and grows into an adult eager to expose the hypocrisy he experienced. Andrew (Matthew Scott Montgomery), Mark's childhood best friend and the sensitive one, prays harder and harder for God to take it away, even as he begins to venture into the gay world to explore the sexuality he is taught is a terrible sin. Benny (Willam Belli), the most flamboyant of the boys, embraces his own true nature early.
