Rainbow Festival reflects diversity of gay community
The 17th annual Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival (formerly The Adam Baran Gay & Lesbian Film Festival) continues through Sunday at the Doris Duke Theatre, Honolulu Academy of Arts.
The lineup includes documentaries, feature films, shorts and animation — all reflecting the diversity of the gay community.
Tickets are $10, available 30 minutes before each screening.
There's also a free mixed plate of offerings — 4 p.m. today — that includes "Calling Nate," about gender identity; "Gender," a dark comedy; "Yellow for Hermaphrodites: Mani's Story," a New Zealand documentary; and "Boy Wonder: Reel Ghetto Queer," about Louis, who is a straight male by day and a transvestite prostitute by night.

The film festival is presented by the nonprofit Honolulu Gay and Lesbian Cultural Foundation.
