The Blonde One
In the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Gabriel (Gaston Re) has just moved in with his colleague, Juan (Alfonso Baron). Shy and reserved, Gabriel is reluctant to follow Juan’s wandering hands and meaningful looks. With a revolving door of beauties streaming out of Juan’s bedroom, his machismo seems firmly in place. However, the attraction between the two men is undeniable. What starts out as a sexual relationship based on convenience of location soon develops into the engrossing evolution of a tender and intimate relationship, which is as sweet as it is heartbreaking. But, as reality begins to set in on their homemaking fantasy, something needs to give… or does it? Argentine writer-director Marco Berger (Plan B, Hawaii, Sexual Tension: Volatile, Young Hunter) is one of our absolute favorite filmmakers and The Blonde One might just be his best work to date.


Tell No One
From writer Roberto Proia and director Ivan Silvestrini, the charming and funny Italian family comedy Tell No One bubbles over with an irresistible romantic playfulness. Italian-born Matthia (Josafat Vagni) is about to move to Madrid to be with his gorgeous boyfriend Eduard (Jose Dammert). By all accounts, their relationship couldn’t be more perfect. Before Matthia moves, Eduard decides to make a grand romantic gesture. He’s going to travel to Italy to surprise Matthia and finally meet his family and close friends. There is only one problem: despite assurances otherwise, Matthia has NOT actually come out to his loved ones! Now, Matthia has to juggle expectations on both sides while trying to keep his perfect, sexy boyfriend from leaving him all together. Tell No One tells a heartfelt story about how it’s never too late to truly be yourself.


Center of My World
After a summer away at camp, Phil (Louis Hofmann) returns home to find that his mother and twin sister (Sabine Timoteo and Ada Philine Stappenbeck) aren’t speaking to one another. Not willing to confront his family during the last days of the summer holidays, Phil escapes to hang out with his best friend Kat (Svenja Jung), eating ice-creams and playing dress-up. As the school year begins, a new student arrives – the handsome and mysterious Nicholas (Jannik Schümann). Smitten, Phil watches his crush as he runs around the track after school, and he’s thrilled when Nicholas returns his feelings. However, when first love’s volatility comes to light, Phil realizes he must deal with the problems of his past in order to deal with the issues of his present. A swoon-worthy coming-of-age comedy from Germany, Center of My World was a huge hit on the film festival circuit.


The Last Straight Man
It may be taboo, but many gay man share the fantasy of sleeping with a straight man. And if that straight man happens to be your best friend and secret crush… it’s even hotter! Writer-director Mark Bessenger allows us to watch this scenario unfold in The Last Straight Man, checking in with two characters having a secret affair over an extended period of time. After a night of heavy drinking at a bachelor party, best buddies Cooper (Scott Sell) and Lewis (Mark Cirillo) end up in bed together. The two men decide to meet in the same hotel suite on the same night each year. The film takes us through four of those nights, spanning a twelve year period depicting how their relationship changes as time goes on. The Last Straight Man is sort of like Richard Linklater’s Before Trilogy… only a lot hotter… and a whole lot gayer, of course.


Men to Kiss
Funny, fresh and unpredictable, this light-hearted romp through queer Berlin and a few of its colorful characters is an absolute delight. New in town, the serious-minded Ernst (Frank Christian Marx) finds his work and personal life thrown upside down after he meets and quickly falls in love with Tobi (Udo Lutz), a flighty, high-energy extrovert and performance artist who lives for the city’s wild nightlife. The two are not exactly a perfect match – actually more like opposites – but they want to make it work and need all the help they can get from Tobi’s coterie of alternative friends. But when Ernst’s friend Uta (Alexandra Starnitzky) arrives on the scene, she thinks Ernst could do much better and schemes to break the lovers apart, setting off a frenzied battle of the fashionista divas. Men to Kiss is an adorable, sun-splashed rapid-fire comedy.

This Weekend’s VOD Favorites

The Gay Cinema Video On Demand experience at has your entertainment needs covered! We’re always working to expand selection of new and old gay-themed movies available for your viewing pleasure. Here’s just five of our current favorites that you may have missed – ALL available to watch INSTANTLY! Stay home, stay safe and enjoy a movie!


Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo
From the directors behind The Adventures of Felix, comes a thoughtful and relentlessly sexy romance. It’s after midnight in a Paris gay sex club when Théo and Hugo lock eyes across the crowded room – and their connection is electric. They make their way together and have passionate sex. Afterwards, they leave the club and explore the streets of Paris, drunk with the possibilities of love at first sight, as well as sobered by the risks of their passion. Opening with one of the most jaw-dropping gay sex scenes we’ve ever seen in a movie, the film plays out in real time and follows the connection that grows between these two men. Lead actors Geoffrey Couet and Francois Nambot, both relative newcomers, put everything on display – both emotionally and physically. Their primal sexual connection is palpable. Warning: As stated above, Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo contains graphic sex and nudity (did we mention that?). Viewer discretion is strongly advised.


My Life with James Dean
Invited to present his first feature film, My Life With James Dean, at a festival in Normandy, attractive young writer-director Graud Champreux (Johnny Rasse) has no idea that this film tour is about to change his life. From wild stampedes to woeful screenings, from trawler trips to drunken evenings with an admiring young projectionist (Mickael Pelissier), Graud ends up finding inspiration in an unlikely town at the end of the Earth. Sexy and totally charming, writer-director Dominique Choisy’s very meta My Life with James Dean is a tribute to life, love and cinema. It’s now available to watch instantly at TLAgay.


Rock Haven
The coastal California community of Rock Haven is the perfect place for cute eighteen-year-old Brady and his loving mother to begin a fresh start. Their mission: to spread the word of the Lord. But while roaming the beach one day, Brady meets Clifford, a young man who is the complete opposite of him: outgoing and athletic as well as incredibly handsome. Their initial encounter stirs up feelings of desire that Brady has been suppressing. Once Clifford makes it clear that their attraction is mutual, Brady’s conflicting feelings of religious obligation and natural impulse go into overdrive, and the two young men must navigate their confusion, lust and beliefs in order to come to a mutual understanding. Writer/director David Lewis crafts an emotionally realistic drama that instead of shying away from the complex nature of sexuality and spirituality embraces both topics uninhibitedly.


Silent Youth
Infectiously sweet, Silent Youth follows a young man who feels locked inside his own mind, but finds a new love who may hold the key to his emotional freedom. Marlo (Martin Bruchmann), a melancholy dreamer, travels to Berlin to visit a friend and ends up spending most of his time wandering around the city streets, lost in his thoughts. He has a chance encounter with Kirill (Josef Mattes), a like-minded youngster who wears battle scars from a recent run-in with a group of homophobic thugs. A cautious, but complimentary relationship begins to develop, but the more Kirill opens up, the more intrigued (and confused) Marlo becomes about how their relationship should proceed. Writer/director Diemo Kemmesies keeps the plot simple and the pace casual while ratcheting up the romantic tension during quiet, observational moments. His camera lingers on these two subtly charming characters during their most awkward silences, as they try to work up the courage to embrace one another fully. When these adorable misfits finally do come out with their feelings, the scene is all the more heartwarming thanks to the refreshingly casual moments that have preceded it.


Tell No One
Fast-paced, funny and even a little tear-inducing when it counts, Tell No One is a charming family comedy about successful young man who is long overdue to start telling the truth. Mattia is excited. He’s about to move from Rome to Madrid to start a new job and marry his long-distance boyfriend Eduard. This will solve two problems: 1) He will be much closer to the man he loves; 2) He won’t have to bite the bullet and finally come out to his family. His plan hits a major snag, however, when Eduard, having no idea that Mattia is still in the closet, announces that he has planned a surprise trip to Rome so that he can meet his boyfriend’s folks and ask for their son’s hand in marriage. Stunned by this unexpected news, Mattia has to compose himself quickly and decide whether or not it’s time to tell the truth to his old-fashioned Italian parents. For anyone who has ever struggled with confessing their sexuality to a loved-one, Tell No One should prove a real gem. The actors are superb, generating great empathy for a colorful, diverse cast of quirky supporting characters, and the filmmakers have done a wonderful job blending clever dialog and comic set-pieces with heartfelt moments of emotional poignancy.

Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds

2006, United States

Boasting a cast of hunks, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds is packed with more sexy, irreverent fun. Returning to head up the cast are gay “American Idol” finalist Jim Verraros as Kyle and Emily Brooke Hands as Gwen. New to the cast, along with an array of studs, is John Waters veteran Mink Stole in a hilarious turn as Kyle’s mom, Helen. When Kyle and Marc (Brett Chuckerman) have a breakup that doesn’t quite feel final, Marc goes off in search of other prey while Gwen, Kyle and Tiffany (Rebekah Kochan) head to art class, where Troy (Marco Dapper) will model nude. As the trio lusts after Troy, they can’t quite figure out who he likes: boys or girls? Troy and Kyle leave class together and head off across campus where they bump into Jacob (Scott Vickaryous) and his ex-gay group, “Coming In”. Kyle, who is ultra-gay without a butch bone in his body, decides to pretend he’s an ex-gay to see if he can get into mixed-up Troy’s pants. There’s lots of room for comic craziness as the charade heats up. Funnier and wackier than the first edition, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds is a total farce, without any intent to educate or illuminate any serious topics. Enjoy!
