GIVEAWAY: DAN SAVAGE’S DIRTY MOVIE TOUR HUMP! COMES TO NYC FOR THE FIRST TIME, WITH DAN SAVAGE HOSTING! (NSFW)


Since 2005 the HUMP! Film Festival (NSFW) has challenged ordinary people from all over the Pacific Northwest to become temporary, weekend porn stars-by making their very own five-minute dirty movies for a chance to win big cash prizes! And they did not disappoint! The resulting short films run the gamut of sexual styles: straight, gay, lesbian, transgender... every color in the sexual rainbow... and some we never knew existed. HUMP! films are funny, thought-provoking, sad, artistic, outrageous, and almost overwhelmingly sexy-because they're real. And they're real because they were created and performed by sex-positive people, just like YOU. That's why we're bringing the very best of HUMP! on the road, across America, and to you this week in NYC! See 20 of the hottest HUMP films in action... they'll make you laugh, squeal, and marvel at the broad (and creative) range of human sexuality. It's the HUMP! Tour 2014! And you're going to have a blast.

We're giving away a pair of tickets! To enter to win, just fill out this form by 11:59pm tonight. The winner will picked at random and notified tomorrow morning.

HUMP! hosted by Dan Savage
Village East Cinema
181 2nd Ave, between 11th and 12th Streets

Savage Love Live Q&A will be happening at select screenings (marked by an asterisk below), and you can submit your questions to Dan there for a chance for him to answer you directly.

peddling written and performed by Harry Melling

’AN EXHILARATING TRANSMOGRIFICATION FOR THE FORMER HARRY POTTER SCREEN STAR.’ The Times of London

A young door-to-door salesman wakes up in a field, somewhere in London, surrounded by the burnt and empty remnants of the night before. With no memory, he knows he must go back to ‘the very start of it all’. His attempt to retrace events from the previous day lead him on a haunting journey where everything comes into questions: his life, his world, his future.

Known the world over as ‘Dudley Dursely’ in five of the Harry Potter movies, Harry Melling has since distinguished himself on stage in London and New York. Peddling is Harry Melling’s remarkable debut play direct from this year’s HighTide Festival.

WIN FREE TICKETS TO A LECTURE AT THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY!


Enter to win 2 tickets to attend “Our Genes, Ourselves; What Can Our DNA Tell Us?”!

What can our individual genomes tell us about ourselves? From shedding light on our ancestry to the potential for personalized medicine, what are the risks and rewards of getting your DNA sequenced? This program brings together Spencer Wells, geneticist and director of the Genographic Project from National Geographic; Rebecca Cann, cell and molecular biologist at the University of Hawaii; Dorothy Roberts, professor of law and sociology at the University of Pennsylvania Law School; and Robert Darnell, physician and investigator at Rockefeller University, to discuss the methods, results and implications of mapping our individual genomes.

The panel will be moderated by Museum curator Rob DeSalle, whose research focuses molecular systematics and genomics.

Spencer Wells, Ph.D., is a leading population geneticist and director of National Geographic's Genographic Project.
