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.

Charming, funny, funny, charming, wonderful
24 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This "no-budget" film was a labor of love, clearly, but the warmth and sense of humor of the writer/star James and his friend and director Carrie Preston shine through in every single moment of this adorable film. I saw it at the NC Gay and Lesbian Film Festival...it is showing at BAM Rose Cinemas this weekend and has been accepted at the Seattle Film Fest. It is worth a peek and then definitely worth distribution.

The film is chaste enough for straight audiences but has enough gay cheek and some right-on bar scenes that will appeal to the G&L crowd. James is so sweet and funny you'll wish you knew him, and his friends are Will and Grace with an edge. The local San Diego scene is shot with love and the special effects are pretty impressive considering that, we were told at the NC festival, the money for the project came out of the stars' pockets.
