As San Diego prepares for its participation in the Equality March on Washington, it will be a great week to get out in the community and have fun, discuss the future and be undivided.

FilmOut presents San Diego LGBT Film Festival

This is the big weekend for the San Diego LGBT Film Festival by FilmOut.

Stars and their entourages will be in town for the event with parties and screenings of films, some of which are making their Southern California debut.

The festival will start on Friday, June 9 at 7pm with Del Shores’ sequel “A Very Sordid Wedding,” the highly anticipated follow-up to the cult hit “Sordid Lives.”

Also this Year, in addition to the award-winning shorts showcased at FilmOut, there will also be a horror tract of short films.

The Next Top DJ at Uptown Tavern Contest

Before you binge on LGBT films at FilmOut this weekend, on Thursday (tonight), bring your headphones, get your decks out and your mixes on for a chance to become Uptown Tavern’s resident summer DJ. This week The Next Top DJ at Uptown Tavern features DJ Cultos VS DJ Heabnasty who will vie for the summertime gig which includes a $700 cash prize.

This event will continue every Thursday until June 13, so you won’t miss a beat as people show off their mixing skills to attendees.

Top of the Bay at Porto Vista Hotel

Of course, the weekend wouldn’t have the proper kickoff without the Top of the Bay event at the Porto Vista Hotel. Enjoy music, and cocktails while looking over the beautiful San Diego skyline clear to the ocean.
