QFest, the annual Philadelphia LGBT Film Festival, opens July 8 with screenings of both the lesbian romantic feature “Elena Undone” and the gay comedy “You Can’t Have It All.

OK, I’ll come right out and state that I’m not a big opera fan, but I recently saw the Opera Company of Philadelphia production of “Orphée and Eurydice” and was delighted by the wonderfully imaginative staging, with very contemporary, stark lighting and interesting angles to heighten the dramatic effect.

THEATER Fiddler on the Roof Walnut Street Theatre presents the award-winning musical, through July 18, 825 Walnut St.

“I love it! I live in the Gayborhood and everything I could ever want is within a five-block radius. This place, Naked Chocolate, theater, music, good food, even a Tiffany’s ... not that I would ever go there, but still. I could live here for the rest of my life and have access to everything I wanted.”

So says Alan Robarge, a new Philadelphian who’s been here a scant six weeks. His enthusiasm about the city is infectious and his ability to meet so many new friends in such a short time is impressive. I met up with Robarge at Absolute Abstract and spoke with him about his life, his work as a psychotherapist and what makes him a proud new Philadelphian.

Queer TV you can always see:

The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday-Friday.

FRIDAY Party Down Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) stars in this comedy series about Hollywood caterers with dreams of making it big.

Everybody knows “Dreamgirls” is the story of Diana Ross and the Supremes, but in this post-“Behind the Music” world, it could be about so many artists.
