Blame it on spaced-out dreams of summer weather or fried brains from finals, but we missed a big event last week, The Boston LGBT Film Festival! But fret not, it runs through Sunday and tickets are still available. Get the schedule and movie details here. And even if you’re not a queer cinema aficionado there are plenty of other options for this weekend, including new parties, shows and some of the same great events around the city.

So after ten months of living in Boston, I had finally accepted that my New England fantasy was mostly, well, fantastical.

And along with the beautiful weather and scenery, there are scores of new events on the agenda for intrepid Bostonians – and none of them involve watching reruns on the WB…
