After getting dumped by his girlfriend, Caleb (Scott Lunsford) falls in love with Gwen. However, thanks to a fib from Caleb’s roommate Kyle (‘American Idol’s’ Jim Verraros), Gwen thinks he’s gay and sets him up with her roommate, Marc, whom Kyle happens to have a crush on. An outrageous comedy, ‘Eating Out’ was so beloved that it launched an on-going film franchise. This is the first movie of the series.

I’ll Love You Forever… Tonight

1993 – USA

Set in the late 1980s, this critically acclaimed indie classic from 1992 portrays a gritty side of gay life in Los Angeles. Ethan (Paul Marius), a 27-year-old photographer, believes he has no need for love or commitments, and is living his life amidst one-night stands. Ethan is coaxed by his “best buddy” Dennis (Jason Adams) into attending a reunion of college friends and lovers at a Palm Springs hideaway. What is supposed to be a restful vacation turns into a round of hard drinking and cruel sexual games. By the end of the “vacation,” Ethan feels a need for new friends and returns to Los Angeles. Confronting his troubled family life, he calls his father – who doesn’t want anything to do with him. In the end, Ethan realises that he can make his own “family” with friends who will accept each other without judgments.
