This year’s fourth annual Out Twin Cities Film Festival, which celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities through film and art, kicked off Wednesday at the St. Anthony Main Theatre.

Thursday night’s lineup features a sneak preview of a Minnesota-made film “The Infamous T,” a documentary depicting a queer family created by circumstance.

The documentary features Jonathan, a teenager taken in by queer host parents through the local Avenues for Homeless Youth GLBT Host Home Program.

It shows the homeless and bullied 18-year-old experiencing a culture-clash with his chosen family and struggling to stay in school. 

The screening begins at 6:40 p.m. and will have a Q & A session with director Melissa Koch, Jonathan and others involved in the film.
