REVRY is ready for April
Culture Q is Revry’s first weekly news show that premieres April 20th. All part of Revry’s April celebration of Easter and Oscar season. The multi-award winning festival favorite God’s Own Country and TransMilitary are all part of the April calendar of content.
The month kicks off with the gameshow Versus hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race icon, Deven Green where your mind fights with your gut! It’s Easter and Revery is celebrating with movies that include Mercy’s Girl, Hell or High Water, Deviant, and so much more to start the conversation about religion and spirituality. It all leads us to Call Me Troy, about the first gay Reverend who started the queer friendly Metropolitan Community Church with over 200 congregants. As part of the month the channel is all about the joy of fun with 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. All of this leads up to the annual star-studded Dorians Film Toast, the official GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics) awards show that highlights the best films and performances of the year a week before the Oscars.
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!
Sunday, April 11, 2021 (National Pet Day)Pet Peeves – After spending 15-years behind bars in a Florida prison, Milton Michaels (Jonah Blechman from “Another Gay Movie”) moves in with his sister in California to restart his pet psychic career. While there Milton reconnects with his childhood dog, as he discovers the urn containing his ashes. But Milton is torn from the beloved ashes when his childhood tormentor, Candice, comes to visit. Candice tricks Milton into a dog-napping scheme that could jeopardize his freedom, just as he starts to connect the dots in his love life.
Haunters – Iggy is a jerk who takes pleasure in other people’s pain and embarrassment. But when Iggy suddenly dies and is sent to her version of purgatory – she gets a taste of her own medicine.
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.
Wednesday, April 7, 2021 (National Beer Day) Beer, Beer – “Beer! Beer!” is an “anti-romantic comedy” set in the early morning following a wild party in Berlin. When Tao, a Chinese guy, meets Sebastian, a local German. As they seem to get more and more intimate with each other, suddenly a mattress changes everything…
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.
Sunday, April 25, 2021 (Perfect Date Day) Sweater – Corey’s day couldn’t be worse. Then he gets a free coffee.
