Storyline

'29th and Gay' is the movie for the gay everyman. Following a year in the life of James Sanchez, it's a story about a guy rapidly approaching thirty, who doesn't have a six-pack, full head of hair or a boyfriend. While his best friend Roxy, an actress-turned-activist, struggles with showing him there's life beyond the glitz of the disco ball, his other friend, Brandon, one of those gay boys comfortable in his own gay skin, works on getting James to at least talk to a boy. Feeling out of place in the world of circuit boys, caught between his Hispanic-American heritage and being gay, we watch James find his place in the world, realizing that life is in the journey, not the destination.

Must see
10 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i know James Vasquez through his partner mark. when he told me they had a movie about to come out i had to see it . i went to a special viewing in San Diego where it was filmed, i must say it is wonderful. it shows the struggles of a gay man and the joy of realization about yourself. but i won't say anymore then that or i will give it away anyway it is a must see for anyone. and to james and mark i hope that you go far with your movie career. there are some really cute bar scenes in the movie that where filmed at a local san diego bar named kickers it is truly the friendliest bar in town and if you are ever there say hi to mark. he is a lil shy about the movie lol.
