Little Lies – Phillip has just lost Marcus, his long-term partner. He tries to forget his grief in a haze of alcohol and invites a young rent boy home. But the boy proves to be more than Phillip bargained for, and a dangerous game of truth and lies unfolds.
Into the Streets – Sydney’s first Gay Mardi Gras started the breakout of a movement in this country. It was 1978 and Craig was a naïve teenager who became swept up in its birth. Through a fragmented recollection, he revisits the chaotic events of the first Sydney Gay Mardi Gras.
OUT in the Lineup – After 20 years of silence, ex-champion surfer David Wakefield feels ready to reveal a secret that could turn his life upside down. He is gay. At the same time, on the other side of the world, Thomas Castets is setting up the world’s first online community for gay surfers. Together they embark on a global journey to speak with people about an aspect of surf culture that has until now remained hidden. They uncover a culture of fear, secrecy and exclusion but are inspired to affect change by connecting people, provoking discussion and looking to the sport’s grass-roots value of freedom of spirit.
