The ship sets out to sea each year with 3,000 men for a seven-day European journey. A luxurious week of dancing, drinking, and drag.

The passengers are overwhelmingly young and white.

Expectations of romance are high as is the rare opportunity for some to experience a freedom not possible in their daily lives.

The film focuses on a handful of them, conducting somewhat probing interviews.

It screens one night only at Berlin & Beyond at the Goethe Institute in San Francisco Thursday 15 February 2018.

Contact Berlin & Beyond for more information and tickets.

Tale Teller

The author of the popular series, Tales Of The City, tells his own story in Logical Family by Armistead Maupin, HarperCollins, 2017.

Maupin has talked about his conservative family upbringing at book signings, radio and TV interviews, and also in films about him. Much of the material in his memoir is already public knowledge.

But for his many fans that have either never seen him in person nor been exposed to recorded interviews, the book offers an additional opportunity to be entertained by his writing.

What began as a conventional life rooted in Southern tradition and politics took an unexpected turn after the author’s move to the West Coast and eventual acceptance of his sexual orientation.

Maupin, a vocal promoter of his adopted city of San Francisco, has made a successful career for himself not only through his writing and speaking engagements but also with ancillary sales. These include television shows, films, theatrical productions, musical presentations, etc.
