Films will be judged by all attendees, along with a handpicked group of special guests. A cash prize of $500 is awarded for the Judges Choice and $1000 for the Audience Favorite. Winning film teams will also walk away with bundles of sizzling goodies from local retailers. Previous judges include: iconic queer pornstar, Jiz Lee; East Bay Express Film Critic, Kelly Vance; social worker/performer, and RuPaul's Drag Race alumni, Honey Mahogony; national cannabis leader, and owner of Harborside Health Center, Steve DeAngelo; author of the Tales of the Pack series, Allison Moon; cultural worker of the urban landscape, social entrepreneur, and co-owner of Impact HUB Oakland, Ashara Ekundayo; artist, performer, fashionista, and graphic designer for The Watergarden, Kenshi Westover; musician, producer, director, and Executive Vice President of Good Vibrations, Jackie "Jack" Strano; and many more!
An after party & awards ceremony will be held after the event at an Oakland venue to be announced soon. Attendees can most certainly expect controversial burlesque, wild interactive audience games, and jaw dropping dance performances creating an all-around crazy, fun event not intended for the light of heart!
