Is there a gay man out there who hasn’t pondered the meaning of masculinity?
Director Christopher Hines asks this poignant question. The result: eighty-seven minutes of hard bodies and hard answers. Heralded as a must-see movie for all gay men, this documentary gets up-close and personal with a strapping slate of interviewees. Bears, jocks, sissy boys and muscle queens tackle loaded topics from internalized homophobia to metrosexuality—each revealing what it means to be a gay man today in their own personal, unique way. Hines’ ambitious and broadly comprehensive documentary also introduces us to the men who are rarely seen at the forefront of gay masculine culture, including a newly out rodeo rider, a rugged female-to-male transsexual and a self-identified sissy who embraces effeminacy. The forthright commentary is aptly mixed with humour, sex appeal and undeniable heart—making it an audience favourite at queer film festivals around the world.
