The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender
The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender - £5.99

From the groundbreaking director of Rock Hudson's Home Movies, Mark Rappaport takes us on a hilarious and provocative romp through the hidden and not-so-hidden gay undercurrents of Hollywood's Golden Years. Dan Butler (Fraiser) acts as tour guide as he uncovers — despite efforts to launder American cinema of even the faintest traces of gay influences — Hollywood's squeamish fascination with gay eroticism and camp. Through the use of ingenious film clips, along with Rappaport's signature witty insights, The Silver Screen: Colour Me Lavender brilliantly uncovers the unmistakable homoerotic flirtations, and the ambiguous behaviour that richly imbued the performances of Danny Kaye, Jerry Lewis, Cary Grant, and other film legends. The Silver Screen: Colour Me Lavender is a rich and funny mediation on American sexual identity, film history and culture that will change the way you look at butch westerns or the campy charades of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby in their buddy road movies forever. Special Features: Rarely seen short film John Garfield Trailer

Private Romeo
Private Romeo - £5.99

Featuring a hot all-male cast and set in a military academy, Private Romeo’s fabulously homoerotic slant on the classic play makes it the most exciting adaptation of Shakespeare’s masterwork since Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet. When eight cadets are left behind at an isolated military high school, the greatest romantic drama ever written seeps out of the classroom and permeates their lives. Incorporating the original text of Romeo and Juliet – replete with the play's most romantic, tender and also vicious moments, the classic story is treated to a decidedly modern twist via YouTube videos and lip-synced indie rock music. Private Romeo takes us on a intense, affectionate ride that only Shakespeare (and a group of the sexiest military men you’ve ever seen!) could have inspired.

His work – made famous by his signature ‘Tom of Finland’ – became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.

Tom Of Finland
Tom Of Finland - £7.49

Finnish biographical drama directed by Dome Karukoski and starring Pekka Strang, Taisto Oksanen and Lauri Tilkanen. Touko Laaksonen (Strang), who would come to be known as Tom of Finland, serves in the Second World War and defends his homeland from invasion, becoming a decorated lieutenant in the process; this is not what he is remembered for however. Touko is homosexual and in the years after the war he encounters some of his old comrades again and forges a lifelong relationship with one of them, but he also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and relies heavily on his sister for support. Touko is a skilled draughtsman and his homoerotic drawings gain him notoriety as part of an increasingly open gay community, despite the continued persecution of homosexuality in Finland and beyond. His art soon makes Tom of Finland a gay icon and a symbol for the emergent social movement for years to come.
