Sadly, most of them were not available to prescreen, but I bet if you google some of them, you might be able to find some online.

This is in no away exhaustive – I am just noting some that seem to stand out.

I did see one of them though – the Oscar nominated “Facing Fear” which deals with a man who is gay bashed only to discover years later that he is working with his assailant. I had to good fortune to learn more about the film when I talked to director Jason Cohen earlier this year. (See link below.)

Other shorts I haven’t seen but caught my interest:

Heklina” about the goddess of drag and manages to tell all of her trials growing up in a short period of time.

Wham Bam mr Pam” about the Naked Sword filmmaker who is as sweet as punch while she talks to you about fisting and man-on-man action in her films with a plot.

Dragula” – who wouldn’t love this title especially when it stars Barry Bostwick, from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” fame.

A Last Farewell” is from one of my favorite gay directors Casper Andreas but the story of aging and grief is a little heavier than his sexy New York stories.

Butterfly” manages to cram a story of transgender lovers with Aspersers into just 13 minutes.

Sticks & Stones” strolls down memory lane with transgender star Bambi Lake.

Mum” looks to be a heartfelt tale with few words of a deaf swimmer wondering if his crush would like him even though he’s deaf.

The Other Woman” features a lesbian of color from Senegal who faces unforeseen risks as she pursues love.

There are MANY more short films that are put together in clever collections – From “Boys in Shorts” to “Local Legends” to “Worldly Affairs.” Check out all of the options at
