Stephen Cummins), an exploration of a gay-bashing in the back streets of Sydney; RSVP (Dir. Laurie Lynd), a powerful portrait of loss punctuated by the haunting voice of Jessye Norman; ANTHEM (Dir. Marlon Riggs), a collage of erotic images that celebrates the lives of African American men; RELAX (Dir. Christopher Newby), an elegant film about one man`s fears and fantasies regarding HIV testing; BILLY TURNER`S SECRET (Dir. Michael Mayson), an upbeat, energetic comedy about a young black man coming out to his homophobic roommate; and THE DEAD BOYS` CLUB (Dir. Mark Christopher), a steamy and poignant tribute to the `70s world of promiscuity and disco balls from the perspective of gay life in the `90s. (Verleiher-Text)
