San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival, San Francisco's insider take:

June is Pride month in San Francisco. Rainbows flags disco-dance in the breeze along Market Street and there's a certain glitter in the air. But, before you dust off the ol' leather pants and hop a float in the parade, take in some culture at the world's most prominent LGBT film festival. Hosted by Frameline since 1977, the annual exhibition draws up to 80,000 viewers and a bevy of celebs such as Alan Cumming and Jennifer Beals for a lineup of films that range from gritty documentary to quirky indie romance to all-out queer comedy. Past hits have included Itty Bitty Titty Committee and Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother.
