  • Falling For Angels (Web Series)
    by (Golu) on March 30, 2019 at 16:54

    When you star watching this 6 part episodic web series from Here TV, you feel like this could easily have been 6 separate short stories, but they eventually all merge in the last episode. The biggest beauty is of the show is that it puts queer me of […]

    by (Golu) on March 28, 2019 at 15:41

    by Rich Cline on May 18, 2019 at 09:00

    Set in a corner of the American South where devout Christians mix easily with the LGBTQ community, this skilfully assembled documentary wisely opts to simply observe the strange juxtaposition, rather than drawing any conclusions. Author […]

  • New Sauvage Trailer – The gay prostitute movie that divided Cannes is coming soon
    by Tim Isaac on January 28, 2019 at 22:16

    I’m always a bit dubious about reports that a film prompted walkouts, as it can’t help but sound like a marketing ploy. However, there were apparently quite a few people who didn’t get through to the end of the screenings of Sauvage at Cannes, due to its graphic approach to its story. However, many of […] New Sauvage Trailer – The gay prostitute movie that divided Cannes is coming soon from Big Gay Picture Show […]

  • u even podcast, bro?
    by (jeffreygmm) on October 25, 2018 at 01:57

    One of my worst vices is listening to podcasts while playing my modded classic Nintendo when I'm supposed to be doing real work.   I don't even know how to use any of the games except Tetris and Dr. Mario and Mario 3 and the first level of Castlevania and sometimes Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, but only when Mark comes over and neither of us know how to get past any levels so […]

  • sharing is caring
    by (jeffreygmm) on October 22, 2018 at 15:32

    I hope you're all staying hydrated and doing your steps - we're in the final stretch to Halloween!  Anyway, this is Mark Gattis' History of Horror.  This is an older special, but it slaps.  Unlike Eli Roth, Mark doesn't hate gay people.  I like that in a man. […]

  • do as i say!
    by (jeffreygmm) on October 19, 2018 at 15:26

    There is only one ranking of the Halloween franchise that matters. My ranking changes hourly with my moods, but as Jennifer Lopez once said: this is me now. 11. Halloween: Red State (2018) In a franchise that somehow managed to avoid queerness, this is the first Halloween movie that's actively homophobic.  It's not well made, it's weirdly racist and it's blatantly sponsored by the NRA. […]

  • i only make passes at guys who wear glasses
    by (jeffreygmm) on October 16, 2018 at 16:26

    Once upon a time, I talked about prolific queer filmmaker David DeCoteau and his particular brand of direct to DVD horror movies in the aughts.  David's a sweet man in real life and you can't help but respect how specific his work is (i.e. hundreds of films that feature shirtless straight boys right off the bus from Iowa willing to do anything on camera for their big break even if that means […]

  • twenty years later
    by (jeffreygmm) on October 11, 2018 at 21:51

    Happy Coming Out Day. In honor of the occasion, I'm coming out in favor of Halloween H20. Once upon a time, twenty years ago, I was a baby freshman in college and, even though I had known for years that I was gay as fuck (I worked in Musical Theatre since I was 12), I never had the guts to do anything about it til I met the right gorgeous sociopath. I remember two girl friends from […]
