"Southern Baptist Sissies," and more @ North Louisiana Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, RFC, Shreveport, Sept 6 - 12

Little known fact: Henry Miller Shreve was the first gay fellow to come out in the Red River region, about 1835. People were so impressed by his outrageous bravery that they named the town for him: Shreve Town. The town's first flag was both Biblical and prescient: it was the seven-striped rainbow flag.
