For the last six-and-a-half months, La Fusion Lounge in the back of Dung Phat Plaza at 11th and Washington has played host to the era-appropriate ’80s look and feel of “NEON: A Boylesque Experience.” The Miami-vibe location was an exceptional live venue for NEON’s colorfully playful nights of male-identifying burlesque — always a mix of trans, gay and drag performers — put together by Adam I. and Josh Schonewolf.

 The hottest months of the year are back, along with many opportunities to empty your bank account for any form of sonic or entertainment Xanax to sublimate your sense of rage and doom, as well as keep your attention away from the mounting pile of socio-political horror that pours forth like lava from a raging volcano.

Out gay writer-director Ofir Raul Graizer’s gentle, absorbing drama, “The Cakemaker,” opening July 6 at the Landmark Ritz at the Bourse, begins with businessman Oren (Roy Miller), a married father from Israel, frequenting the café in Germany where Tomas (Tim Kalkhof) works and bakes. The two men initiate a passionate tryst that ends unexpectedly when Oren is killed in a car accident. This tragedy prompts Tomas to travel to Jerusalem to visits the café owned by Oren’s widow, Anat (Sarah Adler).
