Donald Strachey's claim to fame is being the only openly gay private investigator in the Albany area. He is married to Tim Callahan, the aide to Democratic senator, Dianne Glassman. Because of the expensive house renovations Donald and Tim are going through, Donald reluctantly takes the case of John Rutka, a gay advocate, who is hated by homophobes for being so vocally gay, and by many gays, such as Donald and Tim, because he, through his website, outs gays who want to stay in the closet. The higher the profile of his targets, the better he feels he is advancing the gay cause. John was shot in his own home by an unknown assailant, while his boyfriend Eddie Santon was home with him. John wants Donald to find out and nab who shot him, before the perpetrator finishes the job. They believe that the shooter is probably working for one of the many he is investigating as possibly being gay, the three who he was contemplating possibly featuring in the next edition of his blog being the ...

In the love scene between Strachey and Timmy, Strachey's tattoo is on his right arm. When he wakes up the next morning and climbs out of bed, his tattoo is on his left arm. Other scenes in the movie show inconsistent arm placement as well. See more »
Well, don't you think it's a little bit strange, not to know when you're in somebody's will?
Okay, I think I get the drift of this. Let me tell you something, okay? John was a royal pain in the ass, but he was family and I loved him. And if you're thinking for one second that, what, I murdered him for half a bowling alley and a house, you're out of your fucking mind, okay? So, excuse me, but I have to go bury my brother now.
What a jerk!

When a controversial gay rights activist comes under physical threat from person or persons unknown, he turns to a gay private investigator, expecting unconditional support and assistance. Things don't go well until tragedy strikes...
Fantastic idea that frames a number of interesting questions e.g. does being gay mean automatically accepting and agreeing with all gay politics and attitudes, within the fascinating conceit of presenting a traditional gumshoe who is happily 'out' as a gay man. Sadly, the execution of this relatively low-budget production is frankly terrible, ham-strung by clunking dialogue and some of the worst supporting actor performances I've seen in a while. Chad Allen has charm and chops to spare, and Spence is endearing but for the most part they are horribly hindered by an unimaginative and hackneyed script and a host of wooden performances.
Here's hoping if Joseph Hansen's Brandstetter series ever reaches the screen (small or large), it'll be better than this.
