Taekwondo
In a beautiful country house in a chic suburb of Buenos Aires, Fernando (Lucas Papa) and his buddies are having a “boys only” weekend. Disconnected from the outside world, they bask in the sun, play in the pool, smoke pot and drink – naked or half-naked pretty much the entire time. Fernando decides to invite a newcomer, Germán (Gabriel Epstein), a close friend from his taekwondo class. Germán is quickly welcomed into the group. Fernando doesn’t realize, though, that Germán is attracted to men. Little by little, the two dudes get more intimate and the simmering sexual tension hits a boiling point. Assembling one of the hottest casts in gay movie history, prolific director Marco Berger has outdone himself with Taekwondo.

 

French Kisses
Get seduced by a collection of incredible gay shorts from France. In Apollo, we follow a teen, riddled with insecurities, who fantasizes about an ever more muscular body – and an even bigger banana. Herculaneum concerns two men and a volcano that growls. In The Body of Angels, Remi listens to the birds and falls asleep in the hedges while, Gabriel does something far more sinister. In En Retour, Jean-Marc meets Simon, a younger man, for dinner. After a promising start, the evening plunges into extreme drama. Ruptures follows Gabriel and Andre, ex-boyfriends who cross paths for the first time in ten years. Finally, in Electric July, Thomas and Victor visit an abandoned bridge and face their most secret fears and desires.

 

Paper Boys
After making an impulsive decision to change the course of his life, Cole (Kyle Cabral) moves to San Francisco, using his straight best friend’s engagement party as an excuse to escape a dead-end career and the memories of a passionate summer fling with a boy from New York. But when he arrives, he runs into that very former fling… and old feelings soon begin to resurface. After his friend, Daren (Nathan Brown), reveals that his recent engagement only happened by accident, Cole decides to use the mysterious powers of a re-discovered sketchbook to try to put all of their lives back on track. A short six-episode series, Paper Boys is a charming and thoughtful romance that is sure to leave you swooning.

 

1:54
Tim (Antoine-Olivier Pilon) is a shy sixteen-year-old student, dealing with the loss of his mother as well as his sexuality. The last four years of high school have been tough on him because of school bully Jeff (Lou-Pascal Tremblay). In his last year of school, Tim decides that wants to shine for once. He decides to stand up to Jeff by dethroning him in the 800m championship, the event Jeff is known for in school. But behind the competition and rivalry, a secret is wreaking havoc. After a personal video is shared on social media, Tim’s private life is about to explode into the public eye. Soon Tim finds himself pushed to the edge because of the pressure he endures, the edge where human limits reach the point of no return.

 

Sacrifice
The new 18-minute short film Sacrifice follows two protagonists as they enter a new phase in their relationship. James (Leigh Smith), a humanitarian rights lawyer, and Blake (Jesse Everett), a military officer, are continually torn apart by their overwhelming sense of duty – and their struggle to lead a “normal and quiet life.” They love each other, but their sense of duty is equally as important, especially due to Blake’s military background. Sacrifice aims to show that love is the greatest sacrifice of all, regardless of race, gender and everything in between. The film also pays tribute to those in the military history of Australia who were unrecognized in their service due to their sexuality.

Stream the romantic gay series Paper Boys

A new six-episode gay series available on-demand, Paper Boys tells the story of Cole (Kyle Cabral), who, in a brash decision, secretly moves to San Francisco under the guise of his straight best friend’s engagement party to escape a dead-end career and the memories of a passionate summer fling with a boy in New York. But when he arrives, he runs into the former fling and old feelings resurface. And after his friend, Daren (Nathan Brown), reveals his engagement was an accident, Cole uses the mysterious powers of a re-discovered sketchbook to try to put their lives back on track, whatever the consequences.

Paper Boys was created by Curtis Casella and series star Kyle CabralCasella writes, directs, and edits, and Cabral directed the first two episodes. The two initially met when they both lived in New York City, and became friends when they realized they shared a passion for storytelling. Casella and Cabral self-funded the first two episodes out of their own pockets and funded the rest with Kickstarter.

Cabral describes the somewhat-autobiographical series as “the story of a young, gay Asian-American artist who moves from New York to San Francisco looking to jump-start his career and relationships, and discovers he has a magical power that allows him to reshape his life through his art.” In real life, Cabral is a director, producer, illustrator, and animator who has created cinematics for video games (“The Walking Dead,” “Game of Thrones”) as well as his own queer art.
