Documentarian Christopher Hines illustrates the varying degrees of masculinity in contemporary gay male culture by posing specific questions, and studying the variety of lifestyles of the gay community. The film offers an alternative and new look at masculinity and homosexuality as interpreted by the members of the gay community. There are interviews with rugby players, rodeo riders, writers, teachers, historians, and psychologists, who draw a rich portrait of masculinity and how gay men see themselves and others.

Basically, they interviewed The Village People

A construction worker. A cop. A cowboy. Some leathermen. Mercifully, they stopped short of involving a Native American in this exercise in defining different aspects of masculinity. A lot of generalizations, not many specifics. I stayed with it the whole way, but I didn't come away with any new insights.
