The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with each other about their attendance at the World Premiere of the Patricia Chica feature-length film entitled Montréal Girls. We were in San Jose at the Cinequest Film Festival from Friday evening through Saturday night for the event. We talk about the film, our experience on the Red Carpet, and getting to meet some of the cast and crew for the film. It was a whirlwind trip but absolutely worth it to support our good friend and collaborator, Patricia. We also want to give a special shout-out to Bill Watters from Getty Images, he is such a professional, generous with his time, and courteous to the other photographers. Have a listen, and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
