You'll wish these guys were your friends
23 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The characters, whom most I have never heard of (because I'm a repressed gay American), did such an amazing job not only with their acting, but connecting with me on many levels as queer and the way we have to deal with life and heterosexuals such as the self-absorbed social worker (Pam Strickland) that has no clue that you've been gay-bashed, even though you're black and blue. Typically NOT funny, but funny how he handles her. Or the religious gay conversion group, always funny and even funnier how they deal with them too. They show you the "do's and don't of HIV". I loved all these people and how real they seemed at times and sometimes a bit unreal and over-the-top. I wish I knew these characters in life. They would have taught me a lot. Mostly to get over hang-ups because life is really short.
