A romantic comedy that shatters the definition of family is set to open NewFest, New York City's LGBT film festival.

Tru Loved is the story of 16-year-old high schooler Tru (Gertrude) whose family is made up of two lesbian moms and an openly gay friend. Her boyfriend, Lo, who is the quarterback of the football team, also loves musical theater. Is it possible he's also gay?

Writer/director Steward Wade (Coffee Date) has woven a funny and touching story that dispenses with traditional roles. In the world of Tru Loved, sexual identity is never a foregone conclusion. For example, when Tru meets a boy she likes at a gay-straight alliance meeting, she assumes he's off-limits. Surprisingly, he turns out to be straight.

Tru is over all the gay-fuss – being a teenager – yet, passionate about her family.

Tru Loved is set to open this year's NewFest. The festival has lined up nearly 250 films this year, representing over 30 countries. 71 of these films will have their NY, US or world premieres at NewFest.

Director Tom Gustafson's spellbinding – and award winning – short film Fairies gets its feature length follow-up in Were The World Mine. The gay musical fantasy closes this year's festival.

Timothy is elated when his eccentric teacher casts him as mischievous Puck in a school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Timothy, a social outcast in a homophobic community, loves Jonathon. Soon he discovers a potion that allows him to turn his town gay and make Jonathon love him. What happens when he reluctantly gives up his control over the town?

The Advocate said of the film, “Hedwig And The Angry Inch had better move over.”

The 20th annual NewFest LGBT Film Festival takes place June 5 – 15.
