Revry announces April programming highlighting incredible Queer content

Revry celebrates Easter and Oscar season with an entire April calendar highlighting incredible Queer content made by and for the community including multi-award winning festival favorites God’s Own Country and TransMilitary.  

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. 

Festival favorite God’s Own Country is among the many offerings this month on Revry.

Other highlights for April include:

Boys Town (s1) – BoysTown is a modern day gay episodic drama about friendship, sex and relationships, exploring the everyday lives of seven friends and lovers. In a cross between a gay Desperate Housewives and Sex in the City, the guys are always getting themselves into messes they can’t get out of.

Versus (s1) – From Ru Paul’s Drag Race icon Deven Green and musician Ned Douglas, VERSUS pits contestants against each other in six rapid-fire challenges that will test their trivia skills, memory, and even knowledge of their own social media. Each episode features a new set of mini-games that no-one can prepare for!

Call Me Troy – Call Me Troy is a truly inspirational story about a remarkable and dynamic individual whose activism was decades ahead of its time. Rev. Perry is perhaps best known as the founder of the Metropolitan Community Church – the first church to recognize the spiritual needs of the gay community – but his “firsts” don’t stop there. In 1969, Perry performed the first public same-sex wedding in the U.S. setting the stage for a lifetime of activism of behalf of the LGBT+ community.

Queens & Cowboys – Roping and riding across North America, the International Gay Rodeo Association’s courageous cowboys and cowgirls brave challenges both in and out of the arena on their quest to qualify for the World Finals. Along the way, they’ll bust every stereotype in the book. 

Beer, Beer – “Beer! Beer!” is an “anti-romantic comedy” set in the early morning following a wild party in Berlin. After Tao, a Chinese guy, meets Sebastian, a local German, they seem to get more and more intimate with each other. Suddenly a mattress changes everything.

The Millennial Experience – The Millennial Experience is one part dance-for-film and one part documentary. The film explores cultural appropriation vs appreciation, LGBTQIA+ culture, feminism and how these topics impact the Millennial generation.
