Vision Portraits at 5:15 PM

writer - who have gone through similar experiences and who have
thrived despite their visual impairments.

(METRO Inclusice Community Center, St Petersburg)
After attempting her first sexual experience with her boyfriend,
Ariel discovers that she is different. Her gynecologist reveals

Straight Up at 7:00 PM
A highly entertaining romantic comedy with a twist:
a love story without the thrill of copulation. Hyper-articulate,
obsessive compulsive gay twenty-something Todd (Sweeney) wants
to try being straight. Not because he thinks being gay is bad.
He just thinks he is bad at being gay.
