Hot New Gay Film: Were the World Mine

July 28, 2008 at 7:30 am 2 comments

Were the World Mine may be the hot new gay film that we have been waiting all year for.

In the film Timothy escapes the the narrow-minded confines of his small town high school through musical daydreams. When a teacher assigns him the role of Puck in A Midsummer’s Night Dream Timothy discovers a recipe for a purple love pansy which he uses to turn much of the town’s population gay. In the process Timothy wins the heart of the rugby playing boy of his dreams.

Too many films of late aimed at gay men have been overly formulaic with their After School Special-like earnestness and devoid of the passion and innovation that marked the New Queer Cinema of the 1990s.

Hopefully Were the World Mine marks not simply a return to that heyday of gay film, but a leap forward in telling stories about gay men that celebrate gay sexuality and our lives with intelligence, creativity and honesty.

Were the World Mine recently won the Outfest 2008 Grand Jury Award for outstanding U.S. dramatic feature.

    This gay novel has pretty extreme views about religion and being gay all done in a sci-fi style sory, the writer was even almost killed when this book was first published. After being banned in his own country it is now available.
    check the plot – As predicted by Isaac Newton the second coming happened and as the world waited to see what was about to happen an appointed man was sent to meet God, hours later God had vanished and the man came out immortal; no apocalypse, no destruction and no salvation. This gave birth to a chain of holy wars that almost chattered Earth’s civilizations and so giving birth to a mass colonization of planets to ensure peace by separation. Thousands of years later all was at peace by until Endings were born; humans connected to their planets in such a way that they are capable of destroying them should they wish it. Now Earth’s Ending has been born and the day to pass judgment draws near.
    it can be found here
