This Filthy World: Filthier & Dirtier

The Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is proud to announce their 25th Anniversary Special Guest and performer, John Waters, who will perform his acclaimed one-man show, This Filthy World: Filthier & Dirtier. Waters’ performance takes place at 6:30 pm, Saturday, Oct. 4th. Doors open at 5:30 pm.  The lifelong provocateur and champion of queer film will be presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by TIGLFF in honor of 50 years of queer cinema.

During that time Waters, along with a cohort of lovable misfits from his hometown of Baltimore, created one of the most influential and beloved bodies of work in queer American film. His films include Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, Cry-Baby, Serial Mom, and perhaps his most well-known, Hairspray.

The film became a Tony award-winning play and a 2007 remake starring Tampa’s own Brittany Snow as the delightfully mean Amber Von Tussel. Hairspray became Waters’ most critically acclaimed film, garnering 32 film nominations and winning 14 major film awards.

After his performance at Tampa Theatre, Waters will sign copies of his  NY Times bestseller, Carsick, at TIGLFF’s Mondo Trasho party across the street from Tampa Theatre.

DJ “Lounge Laura” Taylor will spin classic tiki, lounge, funk and soul – and there will be food and beer trucks available for refreshments.

“Flashback”: The 2014 Vintage Fashion Collection

Sponsored by Bartow Ford

Sandra Gray Originals presents “Flashback”: The 2014 Vintage Fashion Collection, showcasing styles reminiscent of the 1940s and 1950s. The silhouettes in the SGO line of daywear, cocktail and evening attire make a strong statement to all women that you can be fun, sexy, and strong while looking classy and elegant.

Sandra is a self‐taught designer and seamstress. Early on, her love for sewing and designing gave her the ability to merge one form of fashion with another. Her innate sense of style, coupled with her desire for quality and fit, has become a staple in her career, and her personal flair radiates throughout her unique collections. Sandra’s logo is the bee, which symbolizes “Bee different, Bee original, Bee yourself.”

Sandra also works as a designer and seamstress for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), creating looks for some of professional wrestling’s most famous superstars. She is a cast member on the hit E! TV reality show “Total Divas,” where you will see her very much in her element: at her sewing machine.

The Flashback Fashion Show will feature WWE Divas and local models presenting Sandra’s line, escorted by some of the top WWE Superstars. The event will be filmed for an episode of “Total Divas.”

Tickets are $50 for general admission or $100 for VIP, plus applicable fees (total of $52/$102 at the Tampa Theatre box office, or $58/$112 online). VIP tickets include premium seating and a meet & greet after show with Sandra, the WWE Divas and Superstars, and the models. Sandra will donate a portion of the show’s proceeds to The Spring Tampa Bay, whose mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families and communities.
