In choreographer Trajal Harrell, modern dance has its most poignant historian, funniest class clown and most sensual essayer of cultures and expressions outside his own era.

Along with creating the post-vogue classic series “Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church” for the 2014 Fringe Festival, Harrell — who spends most of his time in France — is also famous for the messed-up version of the hoochie-coochie, as presented in his new Fringe work, “Caen Amour.”

 Netflix’s “The Comedy Lineup: Part Two” dishes out a second helping of 15-minute sets by an eclectic mix of up-and-coming comedians performing in front of an intimate live audience.

Two of the comedians featured in the Aug. 31 broadcast are Emma Willmann and Kate Willett, both of whom are out.   

 Bisexual filmmaker Desiree Akhavan’s sophomore feature, “The Miseducation of Cameron Post,” is a sensitive adaptation of Emily M. Danforth’s celebrated novel about the title character (Chloë Grace Moretz) being sent to a gay conversion-therapy program called God’s Promise. After Cameron is caught making out with Coley (Quinn Shephard), her best friend from Bible study, her aunt Ruth (Kerry Butler) sends her away to “straighten” her out.
