There’s more to Hawaii than just hula hoops and ukuleles, and Honolulu’s queer arts community wants you to know it!

 

This August 10 – 19, the Honolulu Gay & Lesbian Cultural Foundation (HGLCF) will be putting on the 28th Annual Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival (HRFF28).

 

The HRFF is one of the longest-running LGBT film festivals in the country. VIPs this year are singer/actor/ RuPaul’s Drag Race judge: Todrick Hall, prominent civil rights activists Alexis Templeton, Oscar award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, and U.K. Olympic diving medallist Tom Daley (who will be hosting a charity pool party during the festival).

 

There’ll be a huge range of awesome queer features and shorts, and the vibe is always off the chain fun.

 

We’ve gathered the trailers for a few of the films that will be shown to give you a taste of the treat you’re in for if you decide to snap up some tickets!

 

 

 

 

There will also be a celebrity-hosted pool party fundraiser for HGLCF on August 20 in Waikiki.

 

Aloha, ladies!
