Films, fairs, viewing parties and, of course, music

THURSDAY

Listen up, today is the first day of activities of MIX 21 Festival de Diversidad Sexual en Cine y Video. This amazing showcase of LGBTTTI-themed productions will be running until June 25 in several locations all over the city. For today, head to La Cineteca and catch “Ekaj” at 4:30 p.m., followed by “Minezota” at 6:30 p.m. or “Strike a Pose” at 9:00 p.m. Check out the full schedule and list of venues right here.

FRIDAY

“Gentlemen, start your engines and may the best woman …” No tea, no shade, no pink lemonade,  you finished the phrase out loud complete with the arm gesture. After a long and painful wait, season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race is finally here! Go share the excitement with fellow fans rooting for the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the finalists at Baby in Zona Rosa. Be there every Friday at 7 p.m. Cover is 50 pesos and remember, you better work!

SATURDAY 

Curiosity, much like intuition, is a powerful force that pulls us off from the couch and leads us into exciting and, with some luck, mind-challenging scenarios. If both of these driving forces are kind of numb on your end, fear no more, the Feria de Femzines y Publicaciones contra el Patriarcado will certainly awaken either or both urges within you. The fair will feature all the goodness any fair should have: music, workshops, plays, food, etc. Where? At Cocoveg (Torquemada #76, Obrera). The event starts Saturday and runs until Sunday. Entrance is free but bring plenty cash to spend #GiveYourMoneyToWomen.

Since we’re in the realm of pulsations and urges, why don’t you swing by Foro Dirty Sound and surrender to Noche de Instintos, an impeccable lineup of the most interesting acts of the city’s ever-burgeoning music scene. Don’t miss Pax Zuyuya, Terr Monsta (a staff favorite!) and Forastero all under the same roof. Show starts at 8:00 p.m. and entrance is 20 pesos.

SUNDAY

This is the last day to enjoy Manuel DeLanda’s Ismism (o/deja/al/caló/de/tus/deseos/volver/loco/al/lenguaje): variaciones continuas. DeLanda is a filmmaker and philosopher whose work revolves around the theme of cities, its streets and everything happening in between. This exhibition currently shown at Laboratorio Arte Alameda shows two defining moments in the work of the Mexican artist, from his beginnings in the mid-70’s to his recent 16mm explorations. Entrance is 30 pesos. Museum opens at 9:00 a.m.
