Rainbow Revels (July 28, 2016) Creative Alliance started off Rainbow Fest, its 5th Annual LGBTQA Film Festival, with a Kick-Off Happy Hour at its Marquee Lounge inside the Creative Alliance at The Patterson. Folks gathered there before heading into the theater to listen to Baltimore native, Isaac Oliver talk about his book, Intimacy Idiot, and celebrate its release in paperback.
