Perhaps you know some young gay folks who might just love to have their little queer worlds rocked the way ours were when we first saw some of these films, when we first saw ourselves reflected on screen, given that it’s the holidays and all.
And speaking of the holidays – want to be a Gay Santa for Sylvia’s Place, homeless queer youth services?
