Free screening of Pedro at the Bulldog tonight
I’ll try to suppress my urge to bitch about The Real World, but I don’t think I can summon the will to go next door to the Bulldog (1715 Main St.) for the free screening of Pedro tonight at 6:30. Planned Parenthood is throwing a premiere party for the MTV film about Pedro Zamora, the openly gay, HIV-positive Real World: San Francisco castmember. It’s part of a month-long, nationwide sexual health awareness campaign. The film could be good, it’s written by Academy Award-winning writer Dustin Lance Black (Milk). New York Magazine makes a good point: Why go made-for-TV biopic (which also airs tonight at 7 on MTV) when you have hundreds of hours of real, documentary footage?
