Hot Summer Calendar
By Jason Lamphier
JULY 12: Outfest, the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, boasts an impressive lineup for its 25th Anniversary gala this year. Highlights include the Outfest 2007 Achievement Award presented to Dreamgirls director Bill Condon, Robert Cary�s new film Save Me (starring Chad Allen and Robert Gant), and panel discussions with casts and crews from Ugly Betty and Brothers & Sisters. The festival runs through July 23. Outfest.org has the scoop.
JULY 13: Athletes racked by wanderlust should pack up and head over to Antwerp, Belgium, to check out the EuroGames, hosted by the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation. The event is welcoming 3,000 participants and 10,000 visitors this year, and the games include badminton, bowling, Thai boxing, and�our personal fave�wrestling. (The closing ceremony takes place July 15.) Get the deets at EuroGame.info.
JULY 14: Now that you�ve recovered from the bacchanalian insanity that is July 4th, grab a brick of brie and a bottle of pinot to celebrate French holiday Bastille Day. We�re obsessed with Fromages.com, a site for cheese aficionados that features recipes for the tasting sessions as well as recipes for dishes like sea bream with Cantal and steamed oysters Fourme d�Ambert. Afterward, brush the teeth and go French-kiss your trick du jour.
JULY 15: It�s the last day of Nude Recreation Week, so take a deep breath and take it off. All off. The Naturist Society hosts a slew of informative workshops and festivals all year long, and now they�re offering a Nude Gardening Seminar & Celebration. (Visit NaturistSociety.com.) If that sounds a bit intense, just stay home and bake a quiche in the buff.
