Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

Gay Dude (USA)
A funny short showing a guy coming out to his best girl friend.

This is a college gay romance between an athlete black guy and an openly gay white guy. Strictly ok!

It is not easy to find out the little shorts , for an amateur .The only tittle I can write about is the first in Your list :" Mi hermano" , my brother. Until what point social conventions and prejudices can get to the point to push suicide of a boy and denying responsibility!
I do recommend it :just flawless.

I agree completely with your views. As an aside, there are lot of forums where you can watch these gay short films online.

NSK said...

Is it possible to list where you watched the movie/short being reviewed.
This way people like me can find it.

There so many movies here that I like to watch but donot know where.

If it is not possible for the past reviews, atleast for the future ones. Please.

Noted! But to be honest, a lot of these I have in my hard drive from years of searching on internet and downloaded sometimes using multiple channels.
