Great Short!
22 November 2004 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I just saw this short film on IFC and I thought it was fantastic. It made me laugh, but it also brought up some very true and interesting points. It is a must see for the queer community! If you liked "But I'm a Cheerleader" you'll probably like this short just as much. It is also a good resource to use for LGBT organizations. The director did a wonderful job of pointing out the ridiculousness of some of the things done in the past in main-stream culture. Filmed as a 1950's public service announcement, the satire of the film really comes through to the viewer. Watch this film and prepare to laugh but also be aware of what the LGBT community has had to endure. Enjoy!
