For the first time, Miami’s top gay nightlife icons Alan T, Flavio Nisti, Gio Profera, DJ Smeejay and Edison Farrow are teaming up to create a new gay Thursday night weekly event launching tonight at Jezebel, the former gay bar Halo/Mova (1625 Michigan Avenue Miami Beach).
According to DJ Smeejay: “The sound that I am envisioning for #TBT at Jezebel, will be a reflection of the many diverse dimensions of our own amazing city. Just as #TBT is a call for a gathering of all of our different tribes, the music will also reflect upon this diversity. Ironic, fun, happy and sometimes downright silly to remind us all how very lucky we all are to live here, in paradise. From classic house music anthems to TV show themes to remixes off all of our favorite hits from today, that we all sing along to in the car and at the gym. I am planning on throwing it all into the mix and making sure that everyone gets to hear that track they forgot how much they love, mixed right into something so new and exciting that they just have to know who recorded it.”

This is HOT
Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who has frequent business visits in Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking for answers regarding his death. Under a secret identity, Thomas infiltrates into the life of Anat, his lover’s newly widowed wife. The encounter with the unfamiliar reality will make Thomas involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.
Ofir Raul Graizer, the Director, said: “The Cakemaker” is a melodrama set in Jerusalem. The narrative moves, the settings and the characters, are of my own private memory and experience that have shaped during the 6.5 years I’ve worked on this film. Man-woman, gay-straight, religious secular, berlin-Jerusalem, Middle East – Europe – from these conflicts I was obliged to create a cinematic story where there are no answers to all the questions, like in life, and instead there is love for people and cinema. It’s a story about the attempt to put aside definition of nationality sexuality and religion. It’s my story.
