Provocative, Interesting, & Great Music!
26 April 2006 | by (Plano, TX) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see this film while I was attending the SXSW film festival in March. My friend and I just happened upon the summary and although we are not gay, we have many friends in the gay community, thought it would be worth our time.

I was highly impressed with the level of work and quality of the project. The artists were amazing and incredibly dedicated to their work, most of them choosing to stick to notoriety within the gay community.

I loved it. Some of the artists I had never heard of before are now some of the ones I seek out to listen too. Johnny Dangerous. Katastrophe. QBoy. God-des and She. JenRo. Everyone featured in the film are incredibly talented.

A few weeks ago I saw a video from God-des and She on New.Now.Next. Logo's 30 min. music video program with ties to the gay community and I was so excited to see it mainstreamed. What awesome exposure for the girls! Alex Hinton did an amazing job. I can't wait to be able to own it. It's definitely a film I would recommend. I was never really a major fan of hip-hop before but this movie certainly changed my ideas.

Check it out. Go ahead, pick it up.
