The Kinsey Sicks, a "Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet" perform their critically acclaimed musical comedy "Condoleezzapalooza" only once, and luckily for you, it's tonight! Watch as the heroines of the show "hurl blame at each other liked chipped beef at a cafeteria food fight" and sing both original songs and parodies in four-part harmony. Dragalicious!

The Cinefamily presents Shirley Clark's 1967 documentary Portrait of Jason in which she interviews hustler Jason Holiday regarding his experiences with racism as a black person growing up in the south, his activism and life as a gigolo. His wit and charm keep viewers riveted even as the film eventually becomes a voyeuristic documentation of his gradual descent into the bottle. "A landmark in both queer and confessional cinema."
