Works on multiple levels
8 September 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I wouldn't have the amazing background knowledge of cinesnatch (and that review is fantastic by the way) but on a more simple level this movie should be watched by young LGBT people and older ones struggling with being LGBT.

It's an inspiring movie that explores many of the issues encountered by being LGBT.

It's outrageous, it's fun, it's tragic and sad, and it's a celebration of life and living.

Highly recommended for watching with friends or at your favourite LGBT club or gay bar.
