Is there anything more complex than a gay mans' relationship with his mother?! When gay writer Lorenz returns from Berlin to his native home, a small town in Switzerland, he thinks his only concern is taking a break from writer's block. But he is confronted by some uncomfortable problems; his mother, Rosie, is growing unable to live without help. She is an infuriating but blisteringly honest individual (beautifully played by veteran Sibylle Brunner) who refuses to accept a life without cigarettes and alcohol. Mario, son of an old family friend, reveals himself to be a fan of Lorenz and his devotion becomes an issue after an unexpected one-night stand. Lorenz's sister is fed up with looking after their mother and some family skeletons are revealed. With Mario helping to look after Rosie, all the problems seem to be meshing together, making resolution ever more difficult. Refreshing and heart-warmingly authentic.
All six episodes from the second series of the British sitcom starring Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi as an elderly gay couple.

Finnish biographical drama directed by Dome Karukoski and starring Pekka Strang, Taisto Oksanen and Lauri Tilkanen. Touko Laaksonen (Strang), who would come to be known as Tom of Finland, serves in the Second World War and defends his homeland from invasion, becoming a decorated lieutenant in the process; this is not what he is remembered for however. Touko is homosexual and in the years after the war he encounters some of his old comrades again and forges a lifelong relationship with one of them, but he also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and relies heavily on his sister for support. Touko is a skilled draughtsman and his homoerotic drawings gain him notoriety as part of an increasingly open gay community, despite the continued persecution of homosexuality in Finland and beyond. His art soon makes Tom of Finland a gay icon and a symbol for the emergent social movement for years to come.
The first film in Queer Culture Cinema's Summer of Todd season. Gay indie director Todd Verow enters into the queer mainstream with his latest effort. With two super hot male leads, plenty of lip-locking and a breezy feeling, this deeply personal, and autobiographical film is easily his best work since Frisk. This latest unflinching work from New York-based filmmaker Todd Verow (Frisk, Anonymous) is a deeply personal, semi-autobiographical story of growing up and putting your demons behind you. Life in picturesque Bangor, Maine, is complicated for blisteringly sexy high-school senior Joe. Living with his single mother and older sister in a rough housing project, Joe takes a job as a live-in model for Victor, an artist, to save money for art school. Joe’s equally good looking best friend Andrew has no ambition besides playing football, shoplifting and getting drunk. When their girlfriends point out the obvious – that Joe and Andrew are in love with one another – the two boys begin a relationship and start exploring gay life in their small town but complications arise when Joe’s past comes back to haunt him.

Can you promise forever? Love makes the world go round. At least that’s what Marcel and Kyle believe, until they suddenly discover that love can alternatively flip the world upside-down. When certain elements are set into motion, they tend to stay in motion. If tampered with, they can spin out of control. Marcel and Kyle are in love at first sight, and even though they can’t legally marry, they will find a way to make it work. French Marcel marries their lesbian friend Sarah so he can stay in the USA with Kyle. Enter Kyle’s sister April, a former prostitute. She needs a place to crash, but for how long? Taking a quick dislike to Marcel, April methodically drips poison into their happiness. But where Marcel sees a conniving woman with a not-so-hidden agenda, Kyle only sees his sister - in need. Love isn’t pure after it’s been tainted. Our perfect couple fall headlong into possessiveness, jealousy and rage; trapped in the tangled emotions found in that space between love and goodbye. Just how far will one of them go to put a stop to the madness? Between Love & Goodbye is the new film from writer/director, and recent OUT 100 Honoree, Casper Andreas (Slutty Summer, A Four Letter Word). It is a modern gay drama about falling in and out of love, and the rocky ride in between. Filled with unqualified romance, hilarious situations, and plenty of low down and dirty drama, this is one story where the stakes run as high as the hysteria. The film is set to an original soundtrack and is starring a sexy young cast.
