The search for our true selves takes us to unknown territories – far away from everything we believed in. The movie is the drama of the search of sexual identity of three boys in their teenage years, a story of a sensual but fatal love triangle in the Hungarian Puszta. It is a real love story: it presents the intense, vibrating teenage emotions and revolting filtered by facing homosexuality.
Land of Storms (2014)Szabolcs plays in a German football team, as does Bernard. They are roommates, best friends, inseparable. A lost match and an ugly argument make Szabolcs reconsider his life and go back to Hungary in hope for more simplicity. Yet his solitude does not last long. Soon after his arrival he meets Áron and a mutual attraction between the two boys develops when suddenly Szabolcs receives an unexpected phone call from Bernard: he has arrived to Hungary.

Empire (2015 - )

Genre: TV Series

Year: 2015

Lucious Lyon je vlasnik "Empire Entertaiment" i njegova vladavina muzičkim tržištem je godinama neprikosnovena. Ali sve se to menja kada sazna da boluje od bolesti koja će ga za nekoliko godina obogaljiti. On sad mora da izabere naslednika između tri sina, a da tenzije u porodici ne budu veće nego što jesu. Da sve bude kako treba, pobrinuće se Luciousova bivša žena koja izlazi iz zatvora u kojem je provela sedam godina zbog njega.
Lucius ima tri sina, jedan je ambiciozni advokat, a druga dva su muzičari od kojih je jedan gej.

jmKada sam pročitao ovaj šturi opis serije pomislio sam da se radi o jednoj prosječnoj američkoj sapunici. Nakon prvih nekoliko epizoda Empire je počeo da se pominje na većini gej sajtova, a pošto je serija već nakon treće epizode dobila status jedne od najgledanijih u USA odlučio sam da je pogledam.
Uz gomilu sjajne muzike i zanimljivih likova u seriji u startu mi se dopao Jamal, Luciousov najmlađi sin kojeg je otac bacio u kantu za smeće kada je sa 4-5 godina obukao mamine štikle.
Otac ga je stalno sklanjao od sebe zbog toga sto je gej, ali nije mu se mnogo mješao u privatni život čak i kada je počeo zajednički život sa momkom. Druga dva brata su ga prihvatila kao takvog i naravno majka koja je prema njemu oduvjek imala zaštitnički odnos.
I tako iz epizode u epizodu dočekah Jamalov coming out. Pjevajući očevu pjesmu na jednoj zabavi na koju je došla cjela familija zamjenio je stihove pjesme "You’re So Beautiful" pa je u refrenu otpjevao:

Say it's the kind of song
That makes a man love a man
A man love a man, a man love a man
That makes a man love a man
Please, daddy! No, daddy, please!


Pogledajte kako je to izveo:

"This is the kind of song that makes a man love a man," Jamal sings in his version of "You're So Beautiful" and then yelps: "You call me papi and I like it!"
4EW had an exclusive first listen to “You’re So Beautiful,” the brand new track from the Lyons’ gay son Jamal (Jussie Smollett), who’s on course to be music’s next big music thing.
It’s from last night's episode of Empire, sure to be a hit after the ratings craziness so far, since this week it's time for the Lyon family to come together and record a legacy album with Lucious, Hakeem, and Jamal. Cookie and Camilla (guest star Naomi Campbell) finally come face-to-face, Andre struggles with some inner demons, and Jamal steps into the spotlight with news that surprises everyone in the all-new “The Lyon’s Roar” episode of EMPIRE on Wednesday.
1'You’re So Beautiful’ is one of my favorite songs this season,” Smollett tells EW. “It was produced by the great Jim Beanz and co-written by Jim and myself. When Jim first played the track, it spoke right to me. The lyrics were actually inspired by Gabby Sidibe. She’s confident, sexy, and owns exactly who she is, but every now and then… you just need to simply hear the words, ‘You’re So Beautiful.’ ”
Could Jamal/Jussie have the best gay pop/R&B love song of all time on his hands? It was certainly his coming out anthem.

Squared (2014)
Director: Hieu TranWriter: Hieu TranGenre: Short movie
Country: USALanguage: EnglishDuration: 15 min
Year: 2014
Stars: Yamil Jaiman, Ethan Le Phong, Kevin Tan

The long fought struggle of role-reversing rice queens has been addressed in a new short film by un-acclaimed director, Hieu Tran.  In his new film, SQUARED, Hieu explores the story of a one-night-stand turned implausible swordfight after two men meet at a “trolly stop.”
Unknown actor, Ethan Depong portrays Wally, in the role of Asian Top.  His tender, yet ridiculous performance is sure to earn him plenty of acclaim from gays who still remember their first time watching Godzilla.  The other “top” is played in equally unconvincing (boy’s a BOTTOM) strokes by cuter and even more unknown, Yamil Jaiman.

Year: 2013

Official Sites: Official Website for 'Gorilla'

Stars: Gary Abrahams, Chloé Boreham, Alex Duncan

Na kampovanju sa svojim novim dečkom Joel postavi pitanje kada će biti kraj univerzuma. Sean mu u šali odgovori da zatvori oči i otvori bilo koju stranicu iz knjige i prva riječ koju slučajno ubode na njoj je odgovor. Odgovor je bio Gorila.
Slijedećeg dana dana u kamp dolazi misteriozna djevojka koja u svojoj torbi nosi masku gorile.

"Gorila" je priča o nepoznavanju naših života i pitanjima na koje nikada nećemo dobiti odgovore.
Mene je podsjetio na kampovanje sa jednim prijateljem. Ležali smo ispred šatora i gledali u avgustovsko nebo prepuno zvijezda. Onako, pričali smo uz pivo i ležali putujući među tim zvjezdama tražeći malog princa izgubljenog među njima.

On a camping trip with his new boyfriend, Joel questions when the universe will end. His boyfriend, Sean, plays a game, having Joel close his eyes and pick a random word from a book as his answer. The word is 'gorilla'. The next day, a mysterious woman arrives at their secluded campsite and Joel comes across a sinister gorilla mask in her bag.

‘gorilla’ is a story about the unknowns in our lives and the questions we'll never know the answers to.

The film has screened at festivals the world over, having its premiere at Palm Springs International Short Film Festival. In 2013, the film won the prestigious Iris Prize (the world's largest LGBT short film prize), awarding Tim £25,000 to make his next short film in Wales, UK in 2014.
